I have installed Creo on a Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) machine and the download & install appears successful but Creo Direct 3.0 M070 will not run. Firewalls are disabled and all the Creo programmes are allowed to access the internet. Any ideas greatfully received as I'm not a computer whiz. Thanks. Chris.
Welcome to PTC Community; you will find there is incredible knowledge within.
As a best practice moving forward, please do not ask your question within the title; rather make it a short summary and use the body for the details.
I am sure you will be seeing some follow-up questions and a solution soon.
What happens when you double-click on the icon to launch Creo Direct? Are there any kind of error messages displayed? Please see if a std.out and/or std.err file has been created and what is stated in these files.
Also, do you have a license for Creo Direct or is your license for Creo Parametric?
I followed the PTC installation guide, put in the code the guide said to use and then installed the licence a per instructed. I didn't even change what elements of Creo were installed because I wanted to make sure that I hadn't deviated from the standard install. I assumed that the licence (although it's a student licence) would work as it was all downloaded at the same time as the software.
When I double click on the Direct icon I get the hour glass briefly but then no error message or any other action. The same happens if I try the application file in the /bin directory. I have also tried right clicking and running as administrator. I then get the 'Do you want to allow Creo to make changes to this computer' box and when I click 'yes' the box disappears and then nothing else happens.
This is the text from the std.out file..... there was no err.out file.

If it helps I can copied the text from the e-mail licence that was sent automatically?
The issue appears to be installation related, and unfortunately I don't have much knowledge regarding the installation part of it. I did find some other information regarding the Student Edition. Please see below:
There is a separate dedicated team for student edition, please see the below information:
