Installer, just about, after following NSLW's guide. Most of the core features appear to work fine, still being struck down by the headers on the feature panel being overdrawn (bug 27403). Graphics performance is fine, using nvidia binary drivers installed as per http://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide/ Annotation editor on drawings appears to now work without having to copy any dlls from windows. 32-bit product installed in a new 32-bit wineprefix under 64-bit OS (WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine-newdirname" WINEARCH=win32 wine wineboot) Installer got stuck at the end (the window disappeared without informing me of an error) waiting for a critical section, I did "killall MSIEXEC.EXE" and "killall mscorsvw.exe" and it appears to have left all the installed files intact.
What does not
Appearance / material previews in the Solidworks Resources panel just show as white squares. PhotoView 360 doesn't appear to do anything apart from hang and/or flash windows for a moment.
What was not tested
Any of the other plugins.
Giving this silver, basically works as well as sw2009 used to (minus the photo rendering).

1. Use recent version of Wine(tested with wine-1.7.5)
2. Download winetricks by following command
3. Install required components by following command
sh winetricks -q vcrun2010 dotnet40 mfc40 jet404. Install additional components by following command
sh winetricks -q wsh57 msxml6 riched20
*It will take some time because winetricks will download all above components
5. Set Windows version to vista by following command
sh winetricks vista
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. You should be informed that installation ended successfully and you can proceed normally. If at the end you're informed that installation has failed do not acknowledge this because you will lose your installed files. Start your favourite terminal (e.g. Konsole, gnome-terminal, xterm) and type
The window will disappear and the installation is complete.
1. Set Windows version to xp by following command
sh winetricks winxp
