SolidWorks Student Edition files have a watermark and cannot share files with the commercial version of SolidWorks.

SolidWorks Student Edition uses a soft-lock mechanism to limit installation to one computer only.

If a file is created in SolidWorks 2018-2019 Student Edition, can it be opened in SolidWorks 2019-2020 Student Edition when that ships in the future? Yes, this works fine. If a file is created in a newer version, it can't be opened in a previous version (files are not backwards compatible), but the files are fully forward compatible.
