The West Point Bridge Designer 2007 will introduce you to engineering through an authentic, hands-on design experience. This software provides you with the tools to model, test, and optimize a steel highway bridge, based on realistic specifications, constraints, and performance criteria.
WPBD 2007 is the only version of the software that can be used to enter the 2007 West Point Bridge Design Contest.
Program starts, initial bridge type setup walkthrough, adding joints and members, and load testing animation were fine. I haven't tested everything yet, but everything I've tested has worked - will update if I find anything otherwise.
What does not
Running "out of the box" fails. A workaround involving native DCOM98 was required. See the instructions at http://wiki.winehq.org/NativeDcom.
What was not tested
Probably numerous hidden options. I'll report back after I find them. ;)
Download the version for Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, and 2000 (not the XP one), and use winecfg to set wine to act as 98, since we're using the DCOM98 subsystem.
