2018 SP5.1 REAL DOWNLOAD LINK?

Question

The link in the announcement for 5.1 takes you to the forum post with the link to the SP5.0 link. I downloaded and installed even though I have 5.0 already. VW is still showing 5.0. Is the link totally misdirected? Or does VW just not report the correct SP?

If you go to Check for Updates within Vectorworks itself, what occurs?

Indeed here too.

And it will say that VW is already up to date.

It tells me Vectorworks 2019 is available. And then that Vectorworks is Currently Up To Date. WHich is also what it said before I downloaded the linked file.  Can you provide a good link to a 5.1 installer for OSX?

If you have 2018 SP5, try once again to run Check for Updates now and see if it offers SP5.1. We want to use the built in updater if at all possible because of one of the issues the 5.1 update corrects. If it still fails, ill see if i can track down a manual install for you.

What build do you see in About Vectorworks?

 

2018 SP5.1 is build 461124.

The SP name itself won't matter for this one.

I have that Number in my Download but when I tried to install it said VW up to date ?

Which had SP 5.0 only so far.

But I load again ....

Funny,

File Info says that Version Number Jim mentioned.

My VW 2018 SP5(.0) currently has a much older Version Number.

But the installer still says VW is up to date.

I too got the notice that my application was currently up to date in the update installer, but the installer does indeed give me build 461124.

I think it is because I forgot to vote (one of the the Privacy Setting Checkboxes).

That activated the Startbutton and installs.

The reason was not that careful "Up to Date" hint.

 

Boah, is that VW 2018 start slow ....

but finally 461124 now.

I saw there are 2 similar looking sites for Download.

The one that comes via VW Update > 2019 > No > There is an Update : Link

and the usually other linked from VSS or VW Site.

I think the right one shows only Mac Download,

the other Mac + Win.

I tried all and both show  same checksum.

 

However, all my 3 Downloads showed Version 461124 in Finders File Info

anyway. The 3rd last Download also showed already Up to Date Info and

deactivated Start Button, but it got activated after I activated one of the

checkboxes.

And now my SP5 has 461124.
