Recently had to go to 64 bit OS for large scale assy's in SolidWorks 2010. We have huge volume of MDT legacy modeling in parts & large scale assy's & Mechanical DeskTop 6-7 doesn't seem to want to play well on 64 bit OS so questions are;
-Is newer SolidWorks 2010 / 2011 is still dependant on the MDT geometry engine to do feature based modeling conversions ?
-Can older MDT versions be made to work on 64 bit systems, if so how can we tweak it so it will actually launch w/o crash ?
-If MDT install is still necessary for SolidWorks to do decent feature based modeling converts, is there any other alternative to MDT engine ?
