30 Free Trial CATIA v5r?

30 Free Trial CATIA v5r?

30 Free Trial CATIA v5r?

Does anyone know what release of CATIA v5 30 day free trial is? Also the service pack update #.
Thanks in advance, and Happy 2k+2.

RE: 30 Free Trial CATIA v5r?

Hi, well here in Switzerland / Europe we received the CD package with CATIA V5 R5 working only on WinNT, Win2000 and UNIX.
The service pack level I do not remember. But does this matter since it's a demo!

I cannot believe that Dassault or IBM is will distribute V5R2 in the US, this must be a false information. Sorry Sidim.

Something else might be interesting. This demo CD does not run unless you order a licence key from IBM.    (Although it is a free key but it reminds me of "Big brother is watchin you")

Hope this helped, regards


RE: 30 Free Trial CATIA v5r?


 I think IBM is using the "Key" to give them an
opportunity to call you at the end of the 30 days.
They called me about 2 weeks after I ordered the
free CD "to see if it installed OK." There are also
a lot of "hackers" that could easily defeat a timestamp
and a timed key would make it a bit harder. We are not
talking about a $10 shareware package here.

 I haven't installed it yet, as I am not quite ready
to upgrade to 2000, but should be after I purchase
some upgrade software at the computer show in Norfolk,
this weekend.

Is this free version of CATIA is available for download?

N P,

 I went to the page, clicked on the block for USA/Canada and was
able to get all the way to the registration page. There are very few
countries listed, so you have to select the country that has a language
that fits.
