What works

The installer gernerally works when installing ie8 using winetricks.

But Solidworks cannot be installed on 32 bit system. ie8 requires 32 bit, though.

The installer works with quirks on 64 bit without ie8, but you have to update the screen manually by changing to another window after each mouse click.

It still hangs after entering the license number.

What does not

Cannot be installed


Install ie8 or Alt-Tab in and out of installer.

What was not tested

The software itself, since could not install.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source
