  1. Hi Ray. I followed your suggestion of copying contents of VW to old mac then migrating files to new mac, and installing VW that way. I worked like a charm. Thanks for the suggestion. It seems like the interface between the VW install disc and my optical reader was causing all the problems.
  2. As a layman I'd have to agree. I've tried a lot of workarounds; seems like my machine just doesn't like this disc.
  3. Thanks again for your help. When I followed your instructions, it looked like it was going to work (VWInstaller folder shows 265.96 GB available when before it showed zero). However, in copying Vectorworks to VWInstaller folder copying seemed to hang at 636.7 MB of 5.1 GB. It has hung at that point for about four hours.
  4. When I just drag and drop the InstallVectorkwork ICON from the VW disc to desktop or applications folder I get this error when I try to open copied file: OS Error [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Users/garydavidson/Desktop/Packages' Thanks.
  5. Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately I go this error while trying to copy VW folder to desktop: The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "common-architect-metric-large.vpkg." could not be written. (Error code -36)
  6. Thanks for all the advice. Took my MBP to Genius Bar and they fixed DVD reader with a blast of air. Machine now reads VW DVD fine. Now having problems with install. Looks like it installs then I get "Installation Failed." Sometimes it won't let me install and I get "IOError: [Errno5] Input/Error." Have sent "installerlog.txt" to VW tech. I Hope I can work it out. Frustrating.
  7. Machine works fine with other DVDs, just rejects the VW install disc. Older mac I have opens install disc okay. Any suggestions? Problem machine: OS X 10.5.8 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro w/ cinema display
  8. System will likely be fully loaded macbook pro when they're released in the next few weeks. Also waiting for VW 2009. Thanks for all the advice, what a friendly helpful forum! I'll dig a little deeper into the VW promotional material and see if I can find a feature comparison between ARCHITECT and LANDMARK. Looks like ARCHITECT is all I need.
  9. this is a real newbie question. To design hillside residential projects in LA I am assuming I will need both? I have 20 years hand-drafting experience, and now want to make the jump to digital.
