Install without errors directly from the package.
Solidworks runs, all the toolbars are correctly drawn and I can create a new part/assembly
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
What does not
Everything is in english, locale (french) is not correctly detected during
installation, I guess. (regression, it used to works for a long time)
multiple parts windows or viewports crash the application ( Ok with the patch above with an older wine version)
windows is not correctly drawn if a background image is set (the
application default). If a color backgroud is set, the app is really
slow. With white background, the app runs at normal speed
operation extrude crashes the application. ( not a real crash, but a
thread is blocked, and everything is freezed). It is really strange,
the problem is related to the display of the extrusion UI, all of the
other functions works !
opening an existing file works, but an error message is displayed many times ("incorrect function")
What was not tested
*** UPDATE ***
The version tested is NOT 0.54 ! I made a path mismatch compiling wine, so all the comments here are related to 0.47 !
So 0.54 probably doesn't work, see bug 12582 http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12582
I tested it quite intensively, most the other features are OK.
Opening and modifying really complex models, with thousands of parts is working, so it is really disappointing to see 2 or 3 stupid bugs preventing any use !
There's an old patch for the OpenGL child windows problem http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-devel/attachments/20070821/b0f56ecf/wine_glwin4-0001.bin That used to solve most of the multiple viewports and windows problems The patch has been partially included in wine, but that's not sufficient. Still rated garbage, as save and extrude bugs are preventing any normal use.
