  2. @luuk veugelink Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any workaround or solution to install Vectorworks in a Chrome OS device. However, if you have some sort of access to virtual machines with a macOS or Windows that could be a solution for these Students.

    Dongle Policy Update

    With the release of Vectorworks 2023 on September 14th, Vectorworks no longer supports Series-B dongle licenses. We have made this decision to provide a better user experience for Vectorworks software based on the following issues: Increased reports of lost and stolen dongles. The lack of availability of replacement dongles in cases of damage or technical defect. The declining availability of computers being manufactured with USB-A ports. Increased incompatibility of the dongle drivers with the latest versions of computer operating systems. Increased support cases related to the classification of dongles as malicious software by (automatically updating) antivirus programs. Increased support cases related to users forgetting their dongles and needing access to Vectorworks from another location. We have chosen to standardize our E-series software that doesn't require dongle hardware as it eliminates these challenges and provides a more seamless solution for users. E-series FAQ Do I need to be permanently connected to the internet to work with Vectorworks? No, a constant connection to the internet is not necessary. An internet connection is required to activate the license at the time of installation and regularly pings our activation server to renew its certificate. At a minimum it must have internet access every 90 days. Can I work offline with the E-series license, and for how long? Yes, you can work offline without restrictions for 90 days. If a connection to the internet is available within those 90 days, Vectorworks checks the validity of the license and sets the certificate's expiration date back to 90 days. How can I know how many days I can still work offline? o You can see the number of days left for working without an internet connection in the Vectorworks Preferences: Tools>Options>Vectorworks Preferences>Session>Serial Numbers>License info How can I move from a dongle license to an E-series license? If your license is part of a Service Select maintenance agreement, you will be automatically prompted to make the switch at the time of your upgrade to Version 2023. If your license is not a part of a Service Select maintenance agreement you can request this switch by contacting us at sales@vectorworks.net or through your local distributor.
  7. Starting January 1, 2023, monthly and annual subscriptions will be the only purchasing option for licenses of Vectorworks in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada. December 30, 2022 will be the last day to purchase perpetual licenses or new Service Select agreements in these markets. For all other markets, this change will go into effect by January 1, 2025; please reach out to your local Vectorworks distributor to learn more about the timeline in your market. This means that after January 1, 2023, any perpetual licenses sold or bought between end users will not be eligible for upgrade and will not be able to be added to a Service Select contract. If you choose to buy an older version of Vectorworks from another user, the license is yours and will continue to work as long as you have a compatible operating system, but can’t be transferred into your existing Service Select agreement and you will not be able to assume or transfer their agreement. If you are buying or selling a license with another user, you can reach out to the Vectorworks customer service team at customerservice@vectorworks.net and we will provide a Transfer of Ownership Form which will notify us of the new owner of the license for our records and to provide technical support if the license is still within its support window. If you own any perpetual licenses without a Service Select agreement in place, you should consider adding a Service Select agreement before the end of 2022. Without the Service Select agreement, you will not be eligible for enhanced benefits, including access to the latest versions when they become available.
