Operating system requirements and information

Solid Edge 2021 has been certified to run on the following:
• Windows 10 Enterprise or Professional (64-bit only) version 1809 or later
• Internet Explorer 11
• Internet Explorer is not required to be the default browser.
• Microsoft Office Professional 2016, Microsoft Office 2019, or Microsoft Office 365 Business.

Note

• 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. Due to limited support from Microsoft and graphics card vendors for older operating systems, installation of Solid Edge on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 is not recommended. Solid Edge will install and run on these operating systems, but issues determined to be caused by an incompatibility between Solid Edge and an end of life operating system may not be fixed. Due to the potential for critical issues on these older operating systems, Solid Edge 2021 could be the last Solid Edge release that installs on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

Hardware system requirements

Recommended system configuration
• Windows 10 Enterprise or Professional (64-bit only) version 1809 or later
• 32 GB RAM or more

Security requirements

Siemens’ products and solutions undergo continuous development to make them more secure. Siemens strongly recommends that product updates are applied as soon as they are available and that the latest product versions are used. Use of product versions that are no longer supported and failure to apply the latest updates may increase your exposure to cyber threats.

When attempting to start Solid Edge, if you receive a System Error message that states “The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-heap-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer”, the problem is generally that the operating system is not up-to-date with Windows operating system updates.

Ensure that you have both the required and optional Windows updates installed using Windows Update. At a minimum, download and install the following update:
KB2999226 (Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows).
