It is possible that you will see the error ‘This Student Edition has expired’ if the previous version license is still available on the system. To troubleshoot the issue, follow these steps :
1. Open Windows Explorer and go to C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet.
2. Rename the ‘FLEXnet’ folder to something like “FLEXnet_old”.
Note that the ‘ProgramData’ folder is hidden folder. You can either use ‘Folder options’ to show hidden folders, or you can type “c:\ProgramData” directly on to address bar and the press Enter to access this folder. From there you will be able to locate the ‘FLEXnet’ folder.)
3. Try again to activate the license.
