It's the same as Windows running on any other Intel-based PC, except this one just happens to be made by a company called Apple (and the machine also happens to be able to run Mac OS X).

Well that EXCEPT is the problem. Running Solidworks with LabVIEW is now an option to refine actual models in real time with hardware feedback. This means you need Solidworks running on the Mac at the same time LabVIEW is accessing hardware. Thus Bootcamp is not a solution any more than purchasing a beige box would be.
Even virtualization would not work since the software needs close coupling between the programs, one of which needs hardware access.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
