I am a student and can't get simulation to be an add in in academic version. Please help
Can you post screen capture of your Add-ins dialog box?
There are two different versions of Student License. One includes simulation add-in, the other one does not.
Go to My Products in the about drop-down and see what version of SolidWorks you have.
But even the one without the full add in should still have simulation x-press, the dumbed down, limited version of the add in.
Thank you, after digging into it, i found out that windows 10 has an issue with running the program. A security update has made it difficult for solid works do run some add ins. Apparently they are working on a fix, I had to go deep into a directory and disable a security file temporarily.
