Vectorworks 2009 Service Pack 1 Download Page

These downloads will update all English-language Vectorworks 2009 products (Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and Renderworks) to version 2009 SP1 (Build 96841). If you are currently using a version of Vectorworks prior to 2009, you must first install version 2009 and then update it to 2009 SP1 using this updater.

Make sure your Macintosh executable is named "Vectorworks 2009" or your Windows executable is named "Vectorworks2009" (if Windows is configured to show application file extensions, your file will be named "Vectorworks2009.exe").

Unlike previous releases, you must apply the update using this updater. You cannot update using the DVD check for updates method.

Attention 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.

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 SP1 update.

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