Installing Solidworks 2020 (free for private use)

Post by JPT » Fri Apr 02, 2021 6:35 am

Hi,

Since Solidworks is now given away for free for private use I thought: give it a go.
See https://www.solidline.de/angebote/koste ... e-nutzung/

The Solidworks installer SLDIM does not run out of the box on wine.
I found a workaround saying "winetricks -q jscript ie8"
This works just fine and makes the installer run.

But: this only works on 32 bit wine AND Solidworks is not available as 32-bit any more.

I just realized that if you switch in and out of the installer by pressing Alt-Tab the screen gets updated and you can continue.
So after each mouse click you have to make another window hide the installer.

But it still does not work. After I entered my license code, the installer just stops.

does anyone have an idea?

thanks

This is the log after I pressed continue:
Before (while the installer still works) the log is continuously spammed with the same message over and over.

Where did you find that it is free? Everything I have searched, including Solidworks website to get the 2020 version, are only free to download a trial. The software does not appear to be free.
