10.1 Updater Installation Instructions

Updating to Vectorworks 10.1 using the downloadable updater:

You should use these instructions if you are updating your existing installation using an updater downloaded from the internet.

The updater will update your existing installation in place. When you are done, Vectorworks 10.1 will be installed over your previous version of Vectorworks.

No files are backed up by the installer. This is typically not a problem, but if you have customized your Vectorworks environment by modifying files (such as workspaces or object libraries) within your Vectorworks directory, we strongly encourage you to make a backup before running the updater, as some of these files may be overwritten without further warning.

The updater requires that the final release version of Vectorworks 10.0.1 be installed on your machine. If you are running another version of Vectorworks, you will need to first install 10.0.1 before running this updater.

You should update with the same serial number you used to originally install 10.0.1. The updater will generate error or warning messages if you attempt to update a different mix of products than was originally installed with your 10.0.1 installation.
