ST6 Released!

Hot off the Press….ST6 RELEASED!!!

It is with great anticipation and excitement that I can say Solid Edge ST6 has once again been produced as a top quality product that has TONS of new functionality and features.  The latest version of Solid Edge has been released…officially. 

You may have received a new license file via email earlier.  As this is (once again) an exciting release I wanted to mention a few very high level notes about installing.*

*Of course you will always read and follow the install notes.

Prior versions of Solid Edge required you to turn off User Account Control (UAC) before installing.  This is part of Microsoft’s attempt to make the software more secure.  There are certain areas in programs that require read access and other components that require read and write access.  Microsoft requires programs to have the areas that require write access to be set aside in a designated folder.  This folder, in ST6, is called the “Preferences” folder.

The preferences folder is here:

C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST6\Preferences

 Things like your license file (SELicense.dat by default), options.xml file, material.mtl file are located here now.  Things a user may need to have modified.  For those of you who attended my presentation on the SEAdmin functionality of SE the preferences folder location itself cannot be changed.   See below for an image of what the contents of this file are.

Happy Edging!
