With the release of Ecodesigner *, is it accessible for educational users? I see that it is mentioned as Educational license in the License Information dialog, but when attempting to start any of its features, its not available.

I'm using the Dutch/Flemish version (based on INT), for which ED* is not yet available

says:

EcoDesigner STAR is currently available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Denmark, Sweden and South Africa.


So probably this is why you don't have it available as a download in your country.

There is nothing to download. It is integrated in ArchiCAD latest hot fix. The functionality is there, but I cannot access it.

But we'll see what happens when it becomes available in our region. Would be nice, however, to know how they approach it towards their users.

Then probably there will be a new hotfix that will enable it in other languages as well.

Still unclear to me. The latest hot fix enables it and it should be available with the NED edition (Dutch/Flemish), but I can only access the trial of the Thermal Bridge simulation. So some part at least seems accessible.
