Downloads - Product Updates

These downloads will update all English-language Vectorworks 2008 products (Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and RenderWorks) to version 2008 SP3 (Build 88670). If you are currently using a version of Vectorworks prior to 2008, you must first install version 2008 and then update it to 2008 SP3 using this updater.

Make sure your Macintosh executable is named "Vectorworks 2008" or your Windows executable is named "Vectorworks2008" (if Windows is configured to show application file extensions, your file will be named "Vectorworks2008.exe").

If you install from your existing DVD and choose to check for online updates, Service Pack 3 will be installed for you. Check your version in the "About Vectorworks" dialog for "SP3" if you are unsure.

Attention 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.' If using XP, click the 'Next' button twice to extract the files; or if using Vista click 'Extract.' 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 2008 SP3 update.

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

Step 2
Quit all other applications, except your web browser, and then download the Updater.

Step 3
To install the update, run the updater application and follow onscreen instructions. You may be asked to identify which copy of Vectorworks you want to update to SP3.
