  1. For the record, this problem has yet to be solved. Any other suggestions? (it would be nice to finally stop working in VW 12.5.0 with all it's glitches).
  2. I tried "repair permissions"... no luck. I still get the "Resource Manager Error" when attempting to launch VW 12.5.3
  3. Found it. I moved the user data folder to the desktop, launched Vectorworks, and still no luck. I wonder if there's some glitch with my user account.
  4. So, I don't have this "user data" folder. Can someone send me the contents so I can check to see if this is the problem.
  5. The "Vectorworks 12.5.3" folder in my "Applications" folder does not contain a "user data" folder, nor does my "Vectorworks 12.0.0" folder (my Vectorworks 12.0.0 application works). My coworkers do not have a "user data" folder in their Vectorworks application folder and their applications are working fine. One coworker is working on v12.5.3 and another on 12.5.1
  6. I will try your first suggestion. Are you referring to a user data folder in the Vectorworks 12.5.3 folder or Macintosh HD>Users folders? I can only find a folder named "Microsoft User Data" in my Documents folder.
  7. Does the "Resource Manager Error" appear to be a Vectorworks related problem?
  8. In attempt to update VW 12.0.0 to VW 12.5.3 with the updater, I receive a "Resource Manager Error" These are my installation steps: 1. I'm updating Application Version: 12.0.0.; Series A license; products include Fundamentals, Architect, Renderworks 2. downloaded "Updater installer for 12.0 or 12.0.1 Macintosh (revised 11/09/2007): 318.1 MB found at http://www.nemetschek.net/downloads/fundamentals/version12/12.5.3.php 3. created a back-up copy of my "VectorWorks 12.0.0" folder 4. mounted the "UpdateToVW1253.dmg" file 5. read the "read me" file 6. opened the "Update VectorWorks.app" file 7. went through "Authenticate, Read Me, Licence, Agree to Terms" steps 8. selected "VectorWorks 12.0.0" folder to be the destination folder to be updated to 12.5.3 9. installation window runs for approximately 15 minutes 10. window popped up "The installation completed successfully" with an "OK" tab on the window. Clicked "OK" 11. open "applications" folder 12. open the newly updated "Vectorworks 12.0.0." folder 13. the "get info" command on "VectorWorks.app" file shows Version 12.5.3. (80532) 14. open this "VectorWorks.app" and a window opens saying "Resource Manager Error" 15. upon clicking "OK" tab, another window opens saying "VectorWorks could not be launched because of an unidentified critical error. Check that you have enough memory." Note: 1. My backup copy of Vectorworks 12.0.0 still works. All other applications work fine. Computer works fine. No problems at all. 2. I ran into this same problem a year ago in trying to update 12.0.0 to 12.5.1. Nemetschek ended up sending me a disk copy of the update to use. That did not work as well, so I've been using 12.0.0 ever since. 3. My colleagues have not had any update problems, however, I'm the only one on the iMac Intel Core Duo Any ideas? (let me know if you require any more information) _________________________ iMac4,1 Mac os x 10.5.1, 2 GHz, Intel Core Duo, 2 GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM, SMC Version 1.1f5
  9. I installed Vectorworks 12.5.1 from the installation disk. Again, everything seems to install fine up until I actually go and open the application. I still receive an error that reads "Resource Manager Error". I still have a working copy of Vectorworks 12.0.0 on my computer, so I can keep on working in the meantime. Note: I wonder if this has anything to do with the error I'm receiving... I have an unrelated (maybe related) computer problem where I have to reset my printing system everytime my computer restarts. My "print & fax" system preferences do not remember my printers, which means I have to add the printers I use every time the computer restarts. I have not thought this may be a problem because all of my applications still work fine, including Vectorworks 12.0.0 Any clues?
  10. I have no problem trying to update Vectorworks 12.0.0. from a 12.5.1 installation disk as an attempt to make this work. However, I think it's silly that I'll have to pay for one. I'm hoping Nemetschek can arrange to send me an install disk; is this possible?
  11. To clarify, my Vectorworks 12.0.0. is working fine. I can open it and work in that version. I can not work in 12.5.1... when I try to open the Vectoworks.app (for version 12.5.1), that's when I get the "Resource Manager Error"
  12. I did not get the "Resource Manager Error" with the original installation (assuming you're refering to Vectorworks 12.0.0.) of the disk. I have uninstalled, deleted preferences, emptied the trash and reinstalled Vectorworks 12.0.0 from the disk. The disk installation is successful, the updater appears successful, until I open my newly updated 12.5.1. (refer to my post listing installation steps).
  13. Any thoughts on the "Resource Manager Error"?
  14. Thanks Katie. Ok, I'm calm and cool now! I tried it again and recorded all of my steps: 1. I'm updating Application Version: 12.0.0. (49891); Series A license; products include Fundamentals, Architect, Renderworks 2. downloaded "Updater installer for 12.0 or 12.0.1 Macintosh (revised 1/19/07): 309.6 MB found at http://www.nemetschek.net/downloads/fundamentals/version12/12.5.1.php 3. made a back-up copy of my "VectorWorks 12.0.0" folder 4. mounted the "UpdateToVW1251.dmg" file 5. read the "read me" file 6. opened the "Update VectorWorks.app" file 7. went through "Authenticate, Rad Me, Licence, Agree to Terms" steps 8. selected "VectorWorks 12.0.0" folder to be folder to be updated to 12.5.1 9. installation window runs for approximately 15 minutes 10. window popped up "The installation completed successfully" with an "OK" tab on the window. Note: the mac wheel was still spinning as well when this window popped up. 11. open "applications" folder 12. Note: "Vectorworks 12.0.0." folder is still named "Vectorworks 12.0.0." 13. open this "Vectorworks 12.0.0." folder 14. the "get info" command on "VectorWorks.app" file shows Version 12.5.1. (65397) 15. open "VectorWorks.app" and a window opens saying "Resource Manager Error" 16. upon clicking "OK" tab, another window opens saying "VectorWorks could not be launched because of an unidentified critical error. Check that you have enough memory." Fortunately my "VectorWorks 12.0.0. backup" folder is still in working condition, so I don't have to reinstall. Please let me know if you have any ideas. I'm running OS X 10.4.8. I'll email you the "InstallerLog.txt" file if you want.
  15. When I installed 12.5 update in September, I had a "resource manager error". I was hoping the new update would solve this. I downloaded the 12.5 updater today (updater for v12.0 to 12.5) and it appeared to install fine (like last time). I go to open my new vectorworks and I still get the "resource manager error" and Vectorworks won't open. Once again I have to waste time, reinstall v12 and explain to my boss that I got paid for the past 2 hours for doing nothing. Please help.
