Vectorworks 2013 Service Pack 5 Download Page

These downloads will update all Australian Vectorworks 2013 products (Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and Renderworks) to version SP5. If you are currently using a version of Vectorworks prior to 2013, you must first install version 2013 and then update it to 2013 SP5 using this updater.

Vectorworks 2013 SP5 must be applied using this downloadable updater. You cannot install this update by installing with a prior version DVD and requesting that it check for updates.

Make sure your Macintosh executable is named "Vectorworks 2013" (if your Finder is configured to show application file extensions, your file name will display as "Vectorworks")

Make sure your Windows executable is named "Vectorworks 2013" (if Windows is configured to show application file extensions, your file name will display as "Vectorworks 2013.exe").

For 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". Do not simply drag the files to your desktop while browsing the archive, or the update will fail.

NOTE: Windows users should also be aware that updating while using the preview explorer plug-in could cause the update to fail. Please see this Knowledge Base article for more information.

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 2013 SP5 update.

Download Instructions

Step 1
Determine if you have the correct version for updating. See the exceptions mentioned above.

If you do not have version 2013, or are not sure that your update will work, please contact:

Email or call 02 8338 8699.

Step 2
Download the appropriate updater listed below. Depending on your platform, you may need to unzip files or mount a disk image.

Step 3
Quit Vectorworks and all other running applications including your web browser.

Step 4
To install, run the updater application and follow onscreen instructions. You must remain connected to the Internet during the entire update process. You may be asked to identify which copy of Vectorworks you want to update to SP5.

Step 5
Launch the Vectorworks application you have updated and choose 'Check for Updates' again to ensure you are up to date. [Please note that running the updater downloaded in step 2 a second time does not accomplish this goal and is unnecessary.]
