    Will SWX Student Edition 2014-2015 work with Windows 10?

    Vagulus Dagg

      I, like drafting students all over, am considering an 'upgrade' to Windows 10 in the near future.  I note with some consternation the debate over the workability of some of the other editions of SWX under this new O/S.  Also like other students, I cannot afford to be without SWX - time and assignments wait for no man.  Here's the $64,000 question:


      "What effect will upgrading to Windows 10 have on the operation of SolidWorks Student 2014-2015 on my PC?"


      My machine is Intel QuadCore i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz, 24 GB RAM, MS Windows 7 Home Premium v. 6.1 64-bit SP1.

      It has a SAMSUNG SyncMaster 940BW+ VDU as Primary Screen and a SAMSUNG U28D590D VDU as the drafting board.

      This is driven by an NVIDIA QUADRO K620 Video Card and RealTek High Definition Audio on Motherboard MSI B75MA-P45

      I have Windows Security Essentials as Anti-virus with Memeo Backup Pro, and Skype all running in the background.


      I have the latest version of the NVIDIA driver.  Will that help?
