The Tryout Edition does not have access to floating options. 4. 2. What are the differences between the Commercial version and the Tryout Edition? The Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire Tryout Edition includes features that make it uniquely suited for short-term evaluations. Register your Tryout Edition software. Do I need to complete a registration or licensing process before I can use the Tryout Edition? YES. Before using Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire Tryout Edition users must do two things: 1. change http://<customershostname>. Conversely. All Tryout Edition customers must accept an electronic license agreement during the online registration process before receiving the Tryout Edition license file. 3. 2.ptc. This issue can be resolved by doing one of the following: 1. Remove the DNS suffix from the URL and refresh the page. Obtain a PTC online account. files created with commercially licensed Pro/ENGINEER cannot be opened with the Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire Tryout Edition.h tml to http://<customershostname>:8080/PS_TRANSLATE?filename=webreg. Configure DNS properly and make sure that the DNS suffix listed in TCP/IP Advanced Properties ("DNS suffix for this connection") is the correct DNS suffix for that machine 4. Ex. it is not intended for commercial use. For example. The Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire Tryout Edition is designed to help users enhance their Pro/E Wildfire skills. 3. a license file will be sent by e-mail. Ap pen dix C Page C-3 . The Tryout Edition has a time bomb of 60 days from the time of registration.Frequently Asked Questions 1. (http://www. The Tryout Edition does not read or write trail files.html --OR-Replace the fully qualified Hostname in the URL with the word 'localhost' and refresh the page. Are Tryout Edition files compatible with Commercial Licenses of Pro/ENGINEER? NO.Setup? The error is received because DNS on the machine requesting the license file is not configured properly. a valid e-mail address is required. Why does the error "The page cannot be displayed" appear in my web browser after I select "Create a New License File" in PTC. 2. click on the software registration link.com/appserver/common/account/basic. Please ensure that your mailbox is not full before requesting a license file. Files created within the Tryout Edition cannot be opened with commercially licensed Pro/ENGINEER. the software can no longer be used. http://localhost:8080/PS_TRANSLATE?filename=webreg. 5. How are the Tryout Editions licensed? The Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire Tryout Editions are licensed for personal or educational use only.html 2. therefore.
