Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installer (after installing vcrun2005 vcrun2008)
  • Creating/opening parts, assemblies and drawings
  • Sketching, modeling and assembling all seem to work (I did not try every Feature or Sketch tool)
  • Previous described problems with Dual Screen usage seems to be fixed

What does not

  • Some images still have black/weird background (its a pity but really not a problem)
  • Some buttons/menu items are not responding: 'Reference Geometry -> Plane' and 'Sketch Tools->Convert Entity' (bug #26706)
  • Headers are not properly drawn (bug #27403), this limits some of the functionality of the application
  • Hole wizard button gives 'Out of memory or other error trying to initialize data source from standards file "...\SolidWorks 2010\HoleWizardFavorites.mdb"'

Workarounds

What was not tested

Lots of tools and (more) advanced features of the application (I just did a basic usage test)

Additional Comments

Installation Procedure: $ rm -r ~/.wine $ winetricks vcrun2005 vcrun2008 $ wine swwi/data/setup.exe Run! $ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/SolidWorks/SLDWORKS.exe Note that installing msxml6 (with winetricks) solves/improves some functionality of the application. Not being able to use/add planes and the missing header contents issue, severely limits the usability of the application (hence the 'silver' rating).

HowTo / Notes

WARNING

Some changes introduced in user SID mapping in 1.3.15 prevents SolidWorks to launch if it was installed before 1.3.15

A simple hack solved the problem : 

 env WINEPREFIX=your_solidworks_prefix sed -i "s/S-1-5-4/S-1-5-21-0-0-0-1000/g"  $WINEPREFIX/system.reg  

 


HOWTO

 by NSLW on (September 25th 2012)

Pre-installation steps

1. Use recent version of Wine(tested with wine-1.7.4)
2. Download winetricks by following command

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

3. Install required components by following command

sh winetricks -q dotnet30 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 mfc40

4. Install additional components by following command

sh winetricks -q wsh57 msxml6 riched20

It will take some time because winetricks will download all above components

Installing

1. Go to SOLIDWORKSINTALLATIONMEDIA/swwi/data/
2. Run setup.exe
3. Configure your installation as you like and let installer copy all the files
4. At the end you'll be informed that installation has failed. You will lose your installed files if you acknowledge this, so start your favourite terminal (e.g. Konsole, gnome-terminal, xterm) and type

killall msiexec

The window will disappear and the installation is complete.

Known problems

1. No possibility to install service pack­
Optional steps

There are several steps, which aren't required to successfully start SolidWorks, but help in some way:

  1. sh winetricks riched20 - no crash in vba editor
