    How to Mirror a 2D symbol with the SDK as with the mirror tool?

    Using a transform matrix was what I was about to recommend, but I was unsure for a 2D-Symbol, especially in VW 2015. (However, sorry, I had no time to test it, even on a newer VW.)

    Getting all parameters of build in objects (line, rects, ...)

    Those are not parametric objects (they have not type 86 (or what is it for parametric objects)). You can check in the VWSDK, the path Include\Interfaces\VectorWorks\Objects. There are a few interfaces for simple VW objects. Your code should check the type of the object (ISDK::GetObjectTypeN) and then use the class needed for the specific object.

    Downgrade from VW 2019 SP3.1 to SP 3.0

    You should be able to use the online updater, see this post from Jim Wilson:

    Vectorworks 2019 Offline Update

    Does it work if you specify only one SP (be it SP2 or SP3 ?) At least the command line given in the German VW forum shows only one version number, not two: https://www.vectorworksforum.eu/topic/10341-vectorworks-2019-updater/?do=findComment&comment=52213 ) Also, as you are apparently attempting to update a Dutch VW. Are you sure that the updates are called "SP2" and "SP3" and not otherwise?
  5. H'm, that is the first time I hear something like that. So, sorry, I cannot help you.
  6. Locks through AFP will always behave otherwise than locks through SMB. That is totally independent of VW. See also following articles of Jim Wilson, which are not only useful in the case of project sharing. As for your other questions, sorry, I do not have any idea.

    Error database was not accessible

    Yes, that is interiorcad's XG Resource system. All 4 screenshots are typically of problems with the XG Resource system. Indeed its folder is inside VW user folder. There are a few typical problems with non-working XG Resource system. Most of the time it will not be solved by reinstalling (especially if there is something already in the user folder, e.g. a misconfigured setting). Of course write permission problems could be there, but mostly in that case, VW itself complains if the user folder is not allowed to be written before interiorcad complains.

    Error database was not accessible

    No, that is probably not the problem and installing it new will probably not solve it either. As the dialog tells interiorcad support should be contacted. (As this is a VW forum, not an interiorcad one, I will not get into the details.)

    Error database was not accessible

    That is interiorcad, not VW. Therefore it is our support that you should contact.

    Vectorworks 2016 and Mojave

    And also see this quote: "Vectorworks 2017 & earlier: If you use a version of Vectorworks that was released prior to Vectorworks 2018, we recommend that you DO NOT upgrade your operating system, because critical bugs were introduced in the release of macOS Mojave that will affect the performance and stability of Vectorworks."

    Vectorworks 2016 and Mojave

    Officially it is not supported, not even VW 2016 on macOS 10.13 is:

    Beginner questions

    Alternatively, you can call "Refresh Libraries" in the Resource Manager (from the "cog wheel" menu).

    Module registration order

    I would say that if it has worked that way for you until now, then you should keep it.
  14. Nicolas Goutte

    Module registration order

    Ah yes, then it is problematic. I do not know if this is the recommended way to do that or if there would be another.
  15. Nicolas Goutte

    Module registration order

    I doubt that modules are loaded alphabetically. (I suppose that it is more the order in which the operating system is listing the files.) Mostly however it does not matter. You register the VCOM interfaces you define and then when really something is called in your modules, then alle VCOM interfaces are registered and you can use them.
