Vectorworks 2016 Service Pack 1 Download Page

These downloads will update all English-language Vectorworks 2016 products (Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and Renderworks) to version SP1. If you are currently using a version of Vectorworks prior to 2016, you must first install version 2016 and then update it to 2016 SP1 using this updater.

Vectorworks 2016 SP1 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 2016" (if your Finder is configured to show application file extensions, your file name will display as "Vectorworks 2016.app")

Make sure your Windows executable is named "Vectorworks 2016" (if Windows is configured to show application file extensions, your file name will display as "Vectorworks 2016.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.

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 2016 SP1 update.

International customers should contact their local distributor for pricing and availability.

Download Instructions

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

If you do not have version 2016, or are not sure that your update will work, please contact:

Email sales@vectorworks.net or call 888-646-4223.

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 SP1.

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.]
