What works

The installer generally 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 when Windows version is set to Win10, but you have to update the screen manually by closing the window via the X after each mouse click.

It still hangs after entering the license number.

I tried installing any IE 64 bit version but this did not work out of the box. Maybe minor problems, but did not find a quick solution.

What does not

Cannot be installed


Set to Win10 using winetricks win10

Install ie8 or close Installer-Window with X, then abort closing for updating the screen.

If the progress bar doesn't show green after updating the window, kill and start over.

What was not tested

The software itself, since could not install.
