SP 2 notes and library update fixed

Recommended Posts

Installed SP 2 and it looks like the outdated libraries update problem got fixed. At first it seemed still broken as it stalled writing the catalogue around 27% but if you wait a bit then it will complete the procedure. No more need to start up with admin right in Windows for this.

 

The list of fixes and implemented wishes can be found at:

Wow... that's quite the list of fixes.  I guess they really did hire a bunch more people.

 

Anyways... so far SP2 has been a major improvement for me.   I had major lag when editing textures and major lag before doing any renderings. This happened for me in VW2016 as well.  All lag is gone, its almost like like I got a brand new computer.   Very happy so far.

Well for the Libraries,
I still don't get Previews of all my Workgroup Libraries.

 

Is it that I would need special Ressource Folder Types for these or something else ?

I see some of the fixes were made to Mac OS Sierra.   Is Vectorworks Sierra approved yet?   I don't remember seeing anything that said it was certified yet.

I am running OS Sierra 10.12 and when I installed 2017 sp2 I noticed a significant difference in crashes, great improvement, however my Renderworks texture files are empty. I tried to reload ... the failure said they are already loaded on an earlier version. I can not move any texture file to my favorites in the resource pallet. What am I missing? Thank you

you need to open them, or batch convert them to 2017 versions, that is what creates the thumbnails for the previews.  once that is done, run the updater located under the Gear icon in the Resource manager, that should fix it for you.

I check for SPs semi-regulary, and even right now I have gone up to Help > Check for updates and get the message "Vectorworks is currently up to date". I am on SP1.

Why does this not say update available?

If you have a localized version you may not get SP updates the same day as the english international version, I believe Australia and New Zealand haven't gotten their own version of SP2 out yet. Some of the distributors modify or otherwise customize their versions for their local markets and need time to roll in the SP changes.

Thanks Jim, if I install the SP off the website, will that cause issues when I install the localized version when its available?

I THINK it will stop you from doing so, and I do not recommend trying it.

 

(If you do try it, I recommend backing up your Vectorworks 2017 program folder first.)
