9.5.1 Macintosh Downloads Page

Download Instructions

Mac OS X users- please note that 9.5.1 requires Mac OS 10.1 or higher.

International users- please note that if you use a hardware dongle under MacOS X, you need Mac OS X compatible drivers. If you already use Vectorworks 9.5.0 with MacOS X, you do not need to install drivers, as they were included with the Vectorworks 9.5.0 installer. Otherwise, you can obtain the Mac OS X dongle driver installer here. If your dongle protected Vectorworks is launching in demo mode on Mac OS X, running this installer is the likely solution.

Step 1
Determine if you have the correct version for updating. The updater will update all English-language 9.5.0 products to 9.5.1. These products include: Vectorworks, ARCHITECT, LANDMARK, ARCHITECT with LANDMARK, SPOTLIGHT, and Renderworks. If you are a MECHANICAL user, please contact our Customer Service Dep't at 410-290-5114.

If you do not have 9.5.0 or are not sure that your update will work, please contact sales@nemetschek.net or call 410-290-5114.

Step 2
Quit all other applications, except your web browser.

Step 3
For Mac OS 8.6 and 9.x users, confirm that CarbonLib 1.2.5 or higher is installed in your Extension folder (we recommend CarbonLib 1.5). If it is not, please visit Apple's downloads page. Download CarbonLib and install it according to Apple's instructions.

Step 4
Download the installer and refer to the Read-me file for installation instructions.

Step 5
Launch the 9.5.1 update installer.

The update installer will create a new 9.5.1 folder and will leave your existing 9.5.0 folder intact and unchanged.

If you have trouble using the web-based update installer, we are providing a self-contained update installer which contains everything necessary in a single download.
