Just wondering can a sw2010 be ran on win 7 home premium? or is the basic needed pro??
Can't say for sure about 2010 but I'm running 2012 on Win premium. I think premium is a step up from pro. I have no idea how it compairs to enterprise though. I know back in the old days of XP and Win 2000, 2000 was way less featured. Enterprise may be the same way. Which could be the point. Less fluff to goof things up.
While I am running 2011 on windows 7 home premium I have run 2010 with no issues.
If you look at this chart from SW it says you can. While it doesn't specifically specify
"Premium" for windows 7 that part doesn't make a difference.
Although I do not doubt that it "will" work on the home version, the chart that Scott references states at the bottom that "Home" is not supported.
Sorry Jeff, My bad too. Missed that little small print disclaimer !!!
Oops, my bad. I don't have home premium. I have Ultimate. Not the first time I've confused Premium with Ultimate. I just don't think of something that's called Premium as being at or near the bottom of a pecking order.
Oh yes - it's kind of like not being able to get a small soda at a fast-food place. If the choices are "medium", "large" and "extra-large" - doesn't that mean the small is actually their "medium"?
Just to be clear - for whatever reason, the important word in the SW chart is "Home", not Pro, premium, ultimate, etc. SWorks Corp has maintained for years that they do not support "Home" versions of any operating system. I don't know the deep-seated reason even though many of us have used them with a good degree of success.
SolidWorks is not tested on Home Premium. That doesn't mean that it won't work, but it is not "supported".
