Product Design Suite 2015 includes a licence of Showcase, but the software is not included in the install Media. I recently came across an excellent German Blog, which explains the easiest way to download and activate Showcase 2015. Their advice is to download a trial and activate it on your machine using your PDS Serial Number.
Please follow the steps outlined below (Obviously you want the English language version)
When installing Showcase, the Serial Number and the product key that you must use, are the ones that were supplied with your PDS 2015 Media. One way to find your serial number, is to access the product information on the Inventor Help> About Autodesk Inventor > Product information.
