What works

Installer : swwi\swsetup.exe with winetricks vcrun2005 msxml6

Registration :  the registration window is displayed and can be filled, but it fails to contact the activation server ( regression, it used to work)

Application :

Solidworks is really useable :

  • files operations,
  • all volumic and surfacic operations seem to works,
  • graphic perfs are quite good, display is quite perfect, icons are correctly displayed
  • OpenGL is really used by the application, with shaders !!!!
  • native gdiplus is no more needed, nor dotnet30 !

What does not

  • winetricks vcrun2005 msxml6 is required. ie6 allows right panel to be displayed correctly, but doesn't help for registration or online part browsing.
  • The new IE-based installer (sldim.exe) doesn't work, problems with activeX controls
  • regular installer (swsetup.exe or msiexec -i ) works but crashes at the end when registering application. But it completes.
  •  Toolbox libraries, and some add-ons are not installed correctly. But maybe they can be installed manually.
  • refresh of left panel (property manager) is quite slow, an a black background is displayed
  • an annoying error message pops up every time a file-related menu is called. ( bug  9396 )
  • saving files is very very slow ! (bug 21245). 
  • no access to internet, for registration, or for online libraries when ie6 is activated. 
  • opening "personalized properties" tab on right panel crash the application

What was not tested
Add-on software.

Additional Comments

Solidworks is now usable ! nice job !!!
