View Full Version : Academic and Upgrades?

05 May 2006, 12:40 PM
Hey all,

Just got my Academic license of XSI 5.0 Advanced yesterday. Wooo!! But I noticed Softimage won't let me download the 5.1 upgrade without a maintenance contract. Hmmm. Isn't it free for all 5.0 users?? Even with an Academic License and CID??

Yes, it should be available for all. Or at least I managed to download, install and run it. At first, I had some problems downloading, as the site didn't accept my SID. When I checked again after few days it worked as it should.

You might want to contact Softimage directly if you can't get it to work.

Thanks, I guess I'm used the "instant" internet. Maybe a little spoiled :D

I'll wait over the weekend and give it another try.
