Abstract: We prove the existence of solutions for essentially all linear partial differential equations with $C^\infty $-coefficients in an algebra of generalized functions, defined in the paper. In particular, we show that H. Lewy's equation has solutions whenever its right-hand side is a classical $C^\infty $-function.
