Furthermore, installation of the x32 version of SolidWorks 2008 on an x64 Vista Operating System is blocked, since this is not currently a supported configuration.<end of paste><br /><br />I was really relying on the 2008 version functioning on Vista 64<br />I have been using the Vista Pre Release on a Vista Ultimate 64 and it works great!<br /><br />Does anyone know what the future is for 64 bit Solidworks and Vista?
