Vectorworks 2016

Recommended Posts

The serial numbers are indeed supposed to appear now, preceding the imminent release of 2016. Any current Service Select members who haven't gotten them yet, will have them before the release itself, at which time the downloads will appear as well and the good stuff can begin.

Vectorworks 2015 was NOT supposed to notify you that a new version was available until it was actually available however, that was an error that we have since corrected.

(Bad 2015... bad. I suspect it's misbehaving at the prospect of being replaced by its younger sibling. )

I was roused by an alert regarding certain incidents in other threads, the need to answer technical questions is an unavoidable but useful side effect!

Now perhaps a nap.

Sorry to cause lack of sleep :-(

No worries, I do it to myself! Issue was fixed earlier than it would have been had we not seen it until Monday midday. Net win.

When the time comes I will start a new thread with piles of delicious info, since this one has become a Megathread of Doom™

No matter how hard I glare at the clock, it refuses to move any faster. I am displeased.

If you currently have a dongled version of Vectorworks 2015 or Vectorworks 2014, that same dongle should work just fine with 2016. They are coded to your license directly. The only dongle-specific issues would be if you had a really old hardware dongle from the Vectorworks 12.5 era or earlier, in which case you'd need to replace the old one with a new one.

I know in the US we should have the B series (Dongled version) downloads up on the service Select portal at the same times as the E series (Activation protection, non dongled) downloads for 2016, but the time may vary slightly for other distributors, I am unsure. But if it does, it will likely be a matter of hours or days, not a huge lag behind the other license types.

Thanks for the clarification, I´m in Finland so the process could be the same "download" or do I need to wait for the cd from the reseller?

I would expect both to be available, but distributors are in control of what they offer, you may be able to ask them directly for their specific plans, but I am not sure if they will share any information about that before the actual release:

I would start swinging a sledgehammer around the office and never stop.

The real question is - is it coming today.... I need to decide if I should get back to work - or keep refreshing.

Jim, wink if it is not today....

You should get back to work, but perhaps go to bed a little later than normal. Just my personal recommendation.
