Lost Architect plugins after updating to 9.5.0


When I was trying to use the setup assistant and many other tools from my VW Architect installation, I noticed several ones couldn't be used and a message appeared telling me "not in the plugins folder". Surprisingly, they were inside that folder. In the menus several tools apperaed grayed out with a message saying they were not in the plugins folder. This happens in either Mac OS 9.2.2 or Mac OS X 10.1.3

I deleted everything and reinstalled:

1 Installed VectorWorks 9.0.12 Installed Architect 9.0.13 Installed RenderWorks 9.0.1

All this under Mac OS 9. Everything worked fine, with all the plugins available.

But then I upgraded to 9.5.0 and a message says the installation was succesful. But I launch the application, it starts fast and with no problem, but... again!!! The architect menus are grayed out and I can't use several tools because of this mesage about the plugins not being in their folders, although they are!!!

I've tried upadting to 9.5.0 in both 9 and X and always have the same problem.

What can I do for a correct installation? Should I copy the 9.0.1 plugins to the 9.5.0 folder or something like that?

My computer is an iMac 400 with 384 MB of RAM running both 9.2.2 and 10.1.3

When you upgrade from 9.0.1 to 9.5 make sure to use your Architect, (Not Vectorworks) and Renderworks serial numbers.
