Hi everyone

 

I have installed student version couple days. Now I decide to use trial version. But the pop window which asks me serial number apperas all the time.

Any one has good idea how to stop student version? Thanks!

Hi Jay,

 

So the issue here would be that once you activate the product with a student license, you're unable to revert back to a trial mode. Additionally we do not have a supported method of extending an expired trial. If you simply need to show a drawing to your boss, have you considered taking a screen shot of the model or plot preview?

Hello jie,

 

The student and trial software is exactly the same, and only becomes different (student version carries a watermark) once activated with a student license / serial number.

 

When you open the program and are prompted to activate,  are you also given the option to continue in trial mode?

Hi Philip

 

The problem is no such a prompted window shows up to ask me continue trial mode.

I only can see the window ask me to enter serial number.

Thanks for confirming Jay.

 

When you installed the software, did you do so as a trial or a standalone license (with your student license credentials). Have you tried uninstalling / reinstalling? Is there a reason why you don't want to activate the software with your student license?

When first time I installed softway, I used student version license to active.

I have tried uninstalled and reinstalled couples times, still not wroking.

Because of the waterprint, I am going to buy formal version later. Before that, I need to draw something first and show the work to my boss. That is the reason why I want to stop using student version. Thanks!

It looks no other way to get trial version back. Thank you for your help and suggestion.
