Operating System Requirements & Information

Solid Edge 2022 has been certified to run on the following:

  • Windows 10 Enterprise or Professional (64-bit only) version 1909 or later
  • Internet Explorer 11

Solid Edge, while not dependent on any other browser, has been certified against other modern and popular browsers like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox.

System Requirements

Note:

  • Support for Windows 11 will be announced in a Solid Edge 2022 maintenance pack.
  • Windows Home Edition is not supported.
  • We recommend that you not run Solid Edge on Server operating systems.
  • Solid Edge stops certifying new releases against an operating system shortly after Microsoft drops mainstream support for it. Microsoft dropped mainstream support for Windows 7 in January 2015. Microsoft dropped mainstream support for Windows 8.1 in January 2018. As a result, Solid Edge no longer installs on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
