VW12 won't run.


VW12.0.1, PC, XP, AMD athlon 3200+

When I try to open up VW, I get the message 'VW has encountered a problem & needs to close.' I reinstalled VW last week because I was getting the same problem, now it's happening again.

Have experienced this same problem in an intermittent way previously - sometime it wouldn't load, then it would - no recognisable pattern.

At present it won't load at all - any suggestions?

if you are familiar with editing the registry

then delete the 2 entries for Nemetschek VW12 before you reinstall VW12 -

(if you have 11 still installed leave those alone.)

Start button


regedit (File - Export will save a copy of the Registry in case you mess up)



Vectorworks 12

delete the key for Vectorworks 12


and restart winxp

reinstall from CD and upgrade to 12.0.1
