Vectorworks 2008 Service Pack 1 Download Page

[NOTE: A more recent update - Service Pack 2- is available as of 12/17/2007]

These downloads will update all English-language Vectorworks 2008 products (Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and RenderWorks) to version 2008 SP1. If you are currently using a version of Vectorworks prior to 2008, you must first install version 2008 and then update it to 2008 SP1 using this updater.

Make sure your Macintosh executable is named "Vectorworks 2008" or your Windows executable is named "Vectorworks2008" (if Windows is configured to show application file extensions, your file will be named "Vectorworks2008.exe").

If you install from your existing DVD and choose to check for online updates, Service Pack 1 will be installed for you. Check your version in the "About Vectorworks" dialog for "SP1" if you are unsure.

Upon the initial release of SP1, Windows users who installed Vectorworks 2008 from a Series E DVD were not able to apply the SP1 update. However as of 10/18/2007, the Vectorworks 2008 Series E DVD can now be updated on Windows using this download.

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 2008 SP1 update.

International customers should contact their local distributor for pricing and availability.
