we have installed solid edge ST6 in windows 8 , but it getting closed when we try to open any of the template [part/sheet/assy/draft]. Attaching screen shot for your reference.
Note: Actually it's Win 10 Enterprise Operating system & As ST6 was not supported to Win 10, OS Compatability setting was changed to Windows 8.
my query is, will solid edge St6 works on this setup, any possibilities? (or) we need to change the OS to Win 7/win 8.
Solved! Go to Solution.
AFAIR ST6 should work properely with win 7 and win 8
Besides that take a look into the installation DVD folder of ST6.
Normally there is a README.HTM file
Here is a screeshot from my ST6 readme.htm but this is from the German DVD
But You can see that Win7 and Win 8 are supported.
Even with the compatibility options set to Win 8, you're still running an old version of SE on Win 10 which is not supported. The compatibility stuff in windows is not always great.
If it's an option, I'd recommend you upgrade your SE rather than downgrade your OS, as you get the benifits of the improvements in both pieces of software, and the SE upgrade is "free" assuming you're paying maintainance.
