Vectorworks 8.0.1 Updater

The 8.0.1 release contains many fixes for problems discovered by Diehl Graphsoft, our beta testers, and our users. These fixes have been thoroughly tested and we are confident that the 8.0.1 product is more stable, reliable, and functional than 8.0.0. We recommend that all users of Vectorworks upgrade to version 8.0.1.

As with any complex product, it is possible that 8.0.1 introduces changes in behavior which could affect your work, so when planning the upgrade, please choose a time which would not prevent you from meeting existing deadlines should you experience problems. It is also prudent to make sure your Vectorworks data files are well backed-up when upgrading your software or operating system.

Reporting Problems

The Mac files are Stuffit 5.0 format self extracting archives. If you try to unstuff them with a previous version of Stuffit or Stuffit Expander, you will get an incorrect error indicating that the file is corrupt. You do not need any software to decompress the .sea archives. Simply execute them from the Finder and they will expand onto your hard drive. (9M)
