    Licensing issues - SW2010 SP4 Student Edition

      Hello folks!


      So today I bought a textbook for my first exclusive SolidWorks class (My previous classes were mixed SW and AutoCAD [urgh]) and it came with a download key for a 5 mo license of SolidWorks Student Edition. Last night I went online, retrieved the software and had it install overnight. Today I loaded up SW and it gave me the following error:

      "Could not obtain a license for SolidWorks Standard.


      Cannot find license file.



      And then the program closes. I was never asked for a licence except during installation, and that one was already filled for me so I did not have to enter it.


      Any support would be GREAT!
