Locating an older version of Solidworks (99 t0 2001)


New member
I'm trying to locate an older version of solidworks, preferrably solidworks 99 to 2001. Its for an older machine I have that cannot run the latest version. Is there any vendor that still sells older versions of CAD software? Or are there other CAD programs that I can try which will run well on older computers?
Contact nearest VAR

I would start with trying to contact your nearest VAR. However, if you are running on an older machine, it may be easier and cheaper to just by a recent used system or even a new medium level system. Just, my humble opinion though.
Thanks, I've managed to get my hands on a copy of Solidworks 2004, which I hope will run a little faster than the latest 2007.
