What works

SW2008 SP4.0:

- MSI installer from swwi folder of DVD. 

- Installer complains about regsrv32 somewhere when installer is publishing application information but completes.

- Software runs and can open model and can be somewhat used.

- Network licensing works


Needs winetricks: dotnet20, ie6, vcrun2005, gdiplus, msxml6 for installation and use.

What does not

- File operations tells everytime "An unsupported operation was attempted" few times but works after some clicking to file menu.

- If filenames contains scandic letters like "Ä" or "Ö" those are converted to cubes and solidwors does not regognize files automatically. You have to show files manually when opening for example assembly that contains components named like that.


What was not tested

Did not get OpenGL to work, and without it graphics are really messy. Sketching or other modelling is not easy because you can not see what you are doing.
