    I just installed SolidWorks 2009 on the new unibody MacBook Pro. When I open a part the graphics on the part go crazy when I mouse over the part... Anyone else having this problem or know the fix?

    Persistent Problem

    Thanks to MRoogle I have found this page. This error is inhibiting my everyday work, and as yet I have not found a way around it. On both 2007 and 2008 Solidowrks I regularly get a BSoD error or Solidworks exits with a error. Has anyone found a soultion to this.

    I can't offer a solution, but FYI I have SW 2009 64bit running nicely on my 8 core '08 Mac Pro using:

    Bootcamp Windows 7 Beta install (64bit)
    6Gb ram

    The only issue I had was crashing on open/save. I found a solution and now it's humming along nicely.

    Yezza, I plan to run SWX2009 underboot camp on Windows 7 x64. How did you solve the crashing issues?

    I haven't used it a lot but solidworks 2009 seems to work fine on my windows xp x86 installation.
