Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installing (Make sure Windows Version is set to Windows XP using winecfg).
  • Starting the program ('WINEARCH=win32 wine Edge.exe').
  • Opening files (both parts and assemblies).
  • 3D accelerated viewing seems to work (rotation, scaling, shaded/wireframe etc) with "Graphics Card Driven (Basic)" setting under Tools -> Options... (this is the default setting).

What does not

  • No edit boxes seem to work, so it's not possible to edit or create parts. (When entering av value and pressing enter, Solid Edge complains "This is not a valid unit type". If I select a predefined value, the editbox never releases focus and the value is never applied.)
  • The program never switches back from Profile Edit view: the "Finish" button doesn't fully work. So again, editing or creating parts is not possible.


What was not tested

I haven't used the program much since it's not functional under Wine. E.g. creating assemblies.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

There's been huge progress in the support during the last year. Thanks!
