    When launching Vectorworks, you may run into this error:

    Vectorworks should still launch and operate, but you should be able to fix this by using the following method:

     

    On Windows:

     

    Copy the files in: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Vectorworks 201X

    Into the Vision folder VW installation folder: C:\Program Files\Vectorworks 201X\Vision

    Mac:

    Copy the files out of Lib\App Support\VW 201X

    Into the Vision folder VW installation folder

    This will make Vectorworks ignore the path set by the installer. Vectorworks should now launch without any error.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem. Unfortunately the above method does not solve the problem. I still get the same error message!

    Any fix?

    Hi there

     

    I was so happy when I finally saw a Solution for Windows, but unfortunatly it doesnt help/work.

     

    Are there any other fixes?

     

    Where do I see which path the Installer set? Your quote: "This will make Vectorworks ignore the path set by the installer"

    Nobody?

     

    When I install Vectorworks on my Master-PC, this error doesnt appear, when I copy the Package to another Computer, this error appears. So somehow I missed some components in my package, but all the Vision-Files are there.

     

    Is there something in the Registry?

    Unfortunately if the steps described above did not fix the issue, we might need to troubleshoot further. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    You guys can also try it by yourself

     

    1. I install VectorWorks on one Computer

    2. To deploy it to many Computers, I just copy the whole Vectorworks 2020 Folder in C:\Program Files and copy it to the Destination Computer

    3. Then I import some Registry Settings

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nemetschek\Vectorworks 25]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nemetschek\Vectorworks 25\Registration]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nemetschek\Vectorworks 25\Registration]

    4. Place the Vectorworks Shortcut on the Desktop and done

    5. Sometimes I also have to install some missing Distributables

     

    Since about Vectorworks 2018 this Vision-Error Message appears.

     

    Or is there an official deployment method?

    I have a new PC and had to install Vectorworks 2020 on my new machine. After installation I had this issue with the Vision Library error popping up and I solved it by uninstalling Vectorworks. I went into my Program Files and deleted manually any folders that remained labeled 'Vision2020'. Then I reinstalled Vectorworks and everything worked fine. I opened and closed the program two times to double check.  However, after the installation, VW prompted me to install the newest 'Service Pack' update. I therefore, clicked on the link to install the newest service pack. This installation caused an issue with the Vectorworks 2020 program which I had just installed, making the program un-openable. I then had to uninstall VW a second time, and reinstall it in a separate folder with a different name. I then registered the product over the internet but I then did not check for the new service pack this time. VW 2020 then worked fine again. I believe that the new service pack is causing the issue.
