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!
