    This article covers the basics of installing Vectorworks on both Mac and Windows operating systems.


    First, download the Vectorworks installer for your license. Normally you would do this from your Service Select downloads page. After downloading, double click (Mac) or Right Click > Extract (Windows) to expand the installer. 

     


    Double click in the Vectorworks 2019 Installer icon:

    Next, you will see the default path for Vectorworks to install to. This should normally not be modified. Click Start.

    You may be asked to enter a name and password. This is your operating system login name and password, not your Service Select credentials.

    During installation, you can click one of the links to learn about improvements added in Vectorworks 2019:
