Vectorworks 2024 on Mac Studio won't open



This issue doesn't seem to have been quite addressed elsewhere.


I have just acquired a Mac Studio, running Sonoma. I installed Vectorworks 2024. If I try to open the program, the opening screen comes up, it thinks for a bit, then closes right back down. 


I thought about installing updates 1 & 2, but you can only install those from Vectorworks, so I can't as it won't open.


I checked storage, and I have a whopping 1.1TB used for System Data - trying to clear that now. I have about 650GB available - is this enough to run VW2024?


Any ideas?




System info: 

Mac Studio 2023, Chip: Apple M2 Max, Memory: 96GB, MacOS: Sonoma 14.0

I couldn't have run the "repair" because that requires VW to be open


Actually, you have to close VW if you try running Repair whilst it's open... My understanding is that Repair goes through all the installation files one by one, replacing any which are in any way corrupted, so it would have been interesting to know whether it would have solved your problem...
