Vectorworks 2009 Updates

These downloads will update all English-language Vectorworks 2009 products (Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and Renderworks) to version 2009 SP5 (Build 115703). If you are currently using a version of Vectorworks prior to 2009, you must first install version 2009 and then update it to 2009 SP5 using this updater.

Vectorworks 2009 SP5 must be applied using this downloadable updater. You cannot install this update by installing with a prior version DVD and requesting that it check for updates.

Make sure your Macintosh executable is named "Vectorworks 2009" (if your Finder is configured to show application file extensions, your file name will display as "Vectorworks 2009.app").

Make sure your Windows executable is named "Vectorworks2009" (if Windows is configured to show application file extensions, your file name will display as "Vectorworks2009.exe").

For Windows users it is important that you decompress the zip file in the following manner: Right click the zip archive you download from this page, and select 'Extract All.' If using XP, click the 'Next' button twice to extract the files; or if using Vista click 'Extract.' Do not simply drag the files to your desktop while browsing the archive, or the update will fail.

Vectorworks 2009 SP5 Series E updates will require that you re-activate your license after you install. For SP5 this involves a new one step process which is easier than prior releases of Vectorworks 2009. It does, however require that you activate Vectorworks using an internet connection which allows Vectorworks to access a web server without firewall or proxy server security restrictions. If you have trouble activating, please first check your local and network firewall or other network security settings.

Vectorworks 2009 SP5 sends information to NNA about application crashes to allow us to improve application quality. If you object to this functionality you must disable it in your application preferences.

This updater will ask for the current location of your Vectorworks installation and will update it in place. It modifies only files which were originally installed with the product and leaves other files untouched. If you have customized Vectorworks since installing, you should make a backup prior to installing the 2009 SP5 update.

Updates

Landmark Australia 12.5 Updates

If you already had Landmark Australia 12.5.1 installed and simply updated to VW 12.5.3 using the links above, you do not need download any additional updaters. If you were using an earlier version of Landmark Australia 12, please read on.

There are only two small files to download, uncompress (if the downloaded file still ends with a .zip suffix) and install. The IP Resources file has to be copied to the Plug-ins folder within the Vectorworks 12.5.x folder. You will know you have the correct location because you will be asked if you wish to replace the existing IP Resources file.

Those using Architect Australia 11.5.0 or the Industry Collection 11.5.0, can download and install the 11.5.1 updater without requiring an additional CD from OzCAD.
