It has been reported that installing this package resolves the issue with Solidworks 2009 not running properly in Windows 7. As somehow the redistributable included in the updates needs the update and or experiences corruption during an install together with other components.

Please let us know how it turns out
No such luck, unfortunately. I think part of the problem is that I'm working with Solidworks 2008 (required to be compatible with the copies at school... thanks solidworks for making your stuff non-backwards compatible), but I'm not sure that its that different... I installed both the x86 and the x64 versions of the C++ redistributable, but the program still crashes any time I try to save or load a file.

Any other possibilities?
