What works

Installer : swwi\swsetup.exe with winetricks vcrun2005 ie6

Registration :  the registration window is displayed and can be filled.

Application :

Solidworks is mostly useable :

  • files operations,
  • all volumic and surfacic operations seem to works,
  • graphic perfs are quite good, disply is quite perfect,
  • OpenGL is really used by the application, with shaders !!!!


What does not

  • winetricks vcrun2005 msxml6 ie6 is required
  • 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 they can be installed manually
  • Graphics problems : toolbar icons are displayed with a black background instead of being transparent (bug 18507).
  • refresh of left panel (property manager) is quite slow, an a black background is displayed
  • an error message pops up everytime a file-related menu is called.
  • occasional crashes or freeze when saving files (bug 9396). 
  • no access to internet, for registration, or for online libraries when ie6 is activated. 
  • some little problems with windows manager (compiz) for moving, redimensioning window (solved with gdiplus).
  • Windows icons (close, maximize, etc) are not displayed (solved with winetricks gdiplus)
  • all the window is displayed black at startup (solved with gdiplus)
  • opening "personalized properties" tab on right panel crash the application
  • internal "windows manager" behaves strangely : multiple windows placement is quite random...
