SolidWorks 2008 SP3.0 is now available for download. The following is a change to the Installation Manager to help improve the experience:

The Installation Manager provides an estimate of disk space that will be used for new installs, major version upgrades and Service Packs.

Prior to 2008 SP3, the disk size estimate when applying a Service pack incorrectly showed the much larger size of a full install. This disk space estimation error did not affect what was actually downloaded, ie requesting a Service Pack would always download the SolidWorks patch file versus a full product download.

In SP3, applying a Service Pack now shows the appropriate estimated disk space.
