Operating system not supported

I just downloaded the 45 days trial but it will not install on Windows XP.
Is any chance to get the previous version, ST4?


Re: Operating system not supported

I cannot speak for Siemens PLM, but the point of the 45 day trial is to see if you are interested in the current commercial version which is ST5, and since XP is over 10 years old and has been superceded by 3 new OS versions (Vista, Win 7, Win 8) Solid Edge no longer supports Windows XP (doesn't support Windows 8 either). If you are serious about actually trialing the software I would suggest you upgrade to Windows 7 as XP is a dead end.

Re: Operating system not supported

Thanks for your answer.
Actually I am more interested about how SE compares against Solidworks.
And Solidworks looks like a dead end indeed.

Anyway, I will try again next year when surely hardware will be upgraded.
