CAD ADMINS, here’s a SolidWorks 2011 improvement you’ll really like!

For CAD admins out there, SolidWorks 2011 has made a nice enhancement you’ll really benefit from – no longer do you need to download the 64-bit installation fileset using a 64-bit machine and the 32-bit fileset from a 32-bit machine.  You can now download either package from either machine type, i.e. 64-bit on a 32-bit machine, and 32-bit files on a 64-bit machine.  Obviously of course this only applies to the DOWNLOAD option, you still need to ensure the right package is used for installation based on the workstation bit rate.
