Vectorworks 12.5.2 English-language Updater Download Page

These downloads will update all English-language Vectorworks 12.x products (Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and Renderworks) to version 12.5.2. If you are currently using a version of Vectorworks prior to 12, you must first install version 12 and then update to 12.5 using this updater.

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 12.5.2 update.

Customers can download the online updater or for a nominal shipping fee, users can request the final 12.5.2 installer on DVD by calling 410-290-5114. International customers should contact their local distributor for pricing and availability.

Download Instructions

Step 1
Determine if you have the correct version for updating. The updater will update all English-language Vectorworks 12.x products to 12.5.2.

If you do not have version 12, or are not sure that your update will work, please contact or call 410-290-5114. International customers should contact their local distributor.

Step 2
Quit all other applications, except your web browser, and then download the Updater. Note: you must remain connected to the internet when you run the updater, as it will download support files as part of the update process. Because of this, users behind proxy servers or very restrictive firewalls may experience problems. If you continue to experience difficulty, we recommend that you order 12.5.2 on DVD because the DVD does not require an internet connection.

Step 3
To install the update, run the updater application and follow onscreen instructions. You will be asked to identify which copy of Vectorworks you want to update to 12.5.2. On the Mac you will be asked to authenticate using an administrator account.
