What works

Install without errors directly from the package.

Solidworks runs, all the toolbars are correctly drawn and I can create a new part/assembly

Display is Ok, no artifacts if background windows color is set to a solid color, not a bitmap (default). So change it in preferences !

Sketching works perfectly.

All the 3D operations works, except extrude (very annoying ! ).

Rebuild of existing parts works perfectly, even in extrude functions

Opening a file works, if dcom98 is installed with winetricks


What does not

everything is in english, locale is not correctly detected during installation, I guess. (regression, it used to works for a long time)

toolbox databases are not correctly installed (installer issue).

multiple windows crash the application ( Ok with the patch above)

Graphics windows is not correctly drawn if a background image is set (the application default).

sometime big slowdown occurs, looks like 10000x10000 bitmaps try to be allocated, causing lot of swapping, it may be related to the screen refresh mechanism, huge bitmaps are allocated using default values (uninitialised?) like if some messages are not processed in the right order.

Saving files fails (no crash, but nothing saved) .

3D operation extrude crashes the application.

opening an existing file crash without winetricks dcom98


What was not tested

I tested it quite intensively, all the other features are OK.

Additional Comments

There's a new patch for that OpenGL child windows problem The patch is not yet completely included in 0.9.46 With this patch, multiple windows are allowed, but there are some other problems ( highlighted lines shifted, slowness) Still rated garbage, as save and extrude bugs are preventing any normal use.
