How to run SolidWorks 2015 SP4 on Windows 10

[16-NOV-2015 update: SP5 is still not available…]
SolidWorks 2015 SP4 has compatibility issues with Windows 10. SolidWorks announced they will fix this in the next release of their Service Pack, which will be SP5. Since SP5 will be released no earlier than October, here is a work-a-round: run SolidWorks in compatibility mode.

There’s a second problem with SolidWorks 2015 on Windows 10: some add-ins are unavailable, like the add-in “Solidworks Simulation”. This is caused by a conflict with Windows Update KB3072630.

Then, run a registry cleaner. After that, install SolidWorks. The add-ins should be available now.
