Education branding when using commercial licence?

As per the instructions in the thread linked below, I have set up my system so that I can use both Education and Commercial versions on my computer (Using the registry hack).


Double License


Unfortunately when using the commercial licence the parts I make are getting branded as education version parts.

It is definitely loading the commerical version of Solidworks and not the education version, however something is clearly still mixed up.


To make matters slightly more confusing when troubleshooting, I use an SNL, AND when using the education licence I have to connect to a VPN.

In the licence manager, I have a server port for education and another for commerical. I have to remove the server port I don't need for the particular version I want to run, otherwise things don't work properly.


So even with only the commercial "server port" available I am still getting this education branding.


Can anyone make sense of this?
