solidworks 2008 logoIf you remember the problem I had with SP2.0 that caused (from all indications on my side) me to have my computer wiped and rebuilt, you’ll know I’m glad to see this Service Pack come out so soon.

I’m preparing to load it, this time with WindowsXP System Restore activated. I was stupid and had it off on my last system.

You can, as always, get this new SP from the shiny and still somewhat new Customer Portal.

Update: I’ve decided to hold off till SP3.0. My computer became unusable and is being rebuilt. It’s possible the problem is the video card and may be related or unrelated to the Service Pack. Check the forums and definitely TEST.

Don’t ask me for crackz or free copies. I don’t know how to do that stuff and plus it’s naughty.
