Why has SolidWorks decided to not allow the installation of SW2009 SP5 on Windows 7 computers when using the SolidWorks Installation Manager?


I have been happily running SW2009 on Windows 7 for MONTHS now and all of a sudden the last SP of SolidWorks 2009 will not be allowed to install when using the Installation Manager.


This is extremely disappointing and the kind of decision by SolidWorks that infuriates users.
