    Installed Service Pack 3.1, now Vectorworks won't start. Rebooted the Mac, still won't start, report is "Vectorworks quit unexpectedly" Has anyone else had this problem?

    No, it works for me here on the Mac Mini M1 and macOS 12.4


    Did you try to reboot and the repair option from the VW Updater ?

    Got new MBPro Max today & it runs, but won't open my 2021 files. Gives me error that it's unrecognizable. Not what I want to see!
