V12 Installation

Question

I think I have installed it, but?.

1. The install wizard did not open automatically and I had to open .exe manually

2. Installed disc 1 then it asked for disc 2 and then disc 1 again ? not disc 3? So what is disc 3 and do I need to install it and how?

4. Also disappointed it did not come with a manual as the pdf is hard to read, especially when you are using all of your screen for VW.

Yesterday receive the VW12 disks, installed them w/o serial number. Today received the sn, installed but would not let me open the program. Dongle not recognized. Then put Dongle in but no change.

Where go wrong?

Four discs, wow ! sounds like we are heading towards DVD format install disc time. Certainly cut down on potential disc errors, loss of a disc from the "collection" etc.

Have you actually looked at Disc Three?

My guess is its a documentation disc, probably the manual plus some details of changes made from 11 to 12, but as I said that's a guess on my part, as I've no intention of upgrading just yet.

I had the same problem, emailed Tech Support and was sent to the following URL:

http://kbase.nemetschek.net/index.php?ToDo=view&questId=80&catId=21

Since all products come on the 3CDs, and since it appears that the other components of the LANDMARK product are on CD 3, it is not needed. Below is the excerpt from the above URL:

Depending on the products you have purchased, the VectorWorks 12 installtion may not require the use of all 3 of the shipped installation CDs.

Most of the installation process can be completed by CD 1. The components of the RenderWorks package are installed from CD 2 and some additional components of the LANDMARK product are installed from CD 3.

Note: This applies to Windows users. Installation on the Mac will require the user to insert all 3 CDs, regardless of the enabled products.

Hope this helps. It did for me

That is a help, we have Architect and Renderworks and so we most probably do not need disc 3 - I suppose it would be nice to know up front and NNA could have explained that with a few more words on the installation notes.
