    Reset Vectorworks User Preferences Folder


    PVA - Jim

    Below are the operating system-specific steps for resetting your Vectorworks User folder.
     

    Windows XP

    1) Quit Vectorworks.

    2) Navigate to your Vectorworks Preferences folder in 'My Computer > C: > Documents and Settings > (YourUsername) > Application Data > Nemetschek > Vectorworks'

    3) Delete the folder named the same as the version of Vectorworks you are using. (For example in Vectorworks 2016, the folder is simply named "2016")

    4) Restart Vectorworks. 



    Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10

    1) Quit Vectorworks.

    2) Navigate to the Vectorworks Preferences folder in C: > Users > (YourUsername) > AppData > Roaming > Nemetschek > Vectorworks'

     

    This file is hidden by default. On Windows 7, click on the 'Organize' menu in File Explorer, then go to: Folder and Search Options > View , and check the box that reads “Show Hidden Files and Folders.” On Windows 8 and 10, go to the View pane in File Explorer and check the "Hidden items" option.

    3) Delete the folder named the same as the version of Vectorworks you are using. (For example in Vectorworks 2016, the folder is simply named "2016")

    4) Restart Vectorworks.

     


    Mac OS X and macOS

    NOTE: On Mac OSX 10.7 and newer, the Library folder for your User account is hidden. The easiest way to display it is to open Finder, then hold down the alt/option key on your keyboard while clicking "Go" from  the menu bar, then select "Library"

    1) Quit Vectorworks.

    2) Navigate to the  'settings' folder in 'Mac OSX > Users > (YourUsername) > Library >Application Support >  Vectorworks'

    3) Delete the folder named the same as the version of Vectorworks you are using. (For example in Vectorworks 2016, the folder is simply named "2016")

    4) Restart Vectorworks.
