    Install SolidWorks 2010 in XP mode for Windows 7 64-bit?

    Bruce Buck

      We currently are using Teamcenter for our PLM/PDM needs. This requires a third-party integration module for SolidWorks. We are preparing to switch over to 64-bit and new hardware, but as we understand it, our Teamcenter integration version will not work with Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit). So we were wondering whether we'll be able to still run SolidWorks using XP mode. My main concern is whether we'll have 3D acceleration/OpenGL in that virtual environment, and whether or not running in XP mode will still allow for access to more than the 4GB limit of a 32-bit environment?


      Any ideas?
