Operating System Requirements and Information

 

This release of Solid Edge has been certified to run on the following:

  • Windows 7 Enterprise, Ultimate, or Professional (64-bit only) with Service Pack 1 
  • Windows 8 or 8.1 Pro or Enterprise (64-bit only) 
  • Windows 8 (home) and Windows 8 RT are not supported 
  • Internet Explorer 10 or 11 (IE 8 meets minimum requirements)

NOTE: Solid Edge ST7 is 64-bit only. Solid Edge ST6 was the last release of 32-bit Solid Edge.

 

Solid Edge stops certifying new releases against an operating system shortly after Microsoft drops mainstream support for it. Microsoft dropped mainstream support for XP in April 2009. Microsoft dropped mainstream support for Vista in April 2012. Solid Edge ST7 will not install on Windows Vista or Windows XP. Microsoft plans to drop support for Windows 7 in January 2015.
