Doing a Check for Updates does not work for me, it just keeps telling me that I have the current version. I have SP1 installed, is there some other way of getting the SP?

Nearly 800 bugs were fixed in 2019 SP2 overall, the above is a summary of only issues that were corrected between 2019 SP1 and 2019 SP2. If you have any specific issues that you do not see here that you would like to know the status of, please let me know or link me to the bug and I will attempt to track it down for you.

It sometimes takes a bit to propagate to all locations. It should either pop up automatically on it's own or show up after running Check for Updates a few minutes after this post.

Hi Jim,

VB-154300 Multiple space labels class fix doesn't seem to have made the cut in SP2.  This one is pretty important to our workflow!

It looks like the fix wasn't complete in time to make SP2, but it is marked as fixed in SP3. It may also appear as VB-156040, a duplicate filing of the same issue.

Updating to SP2 has failed for me 3 times. I've never had an update fail before. I don't like that the progress bar resets to zero when it fails. I would like to see what its showing at the point of failure which is somewhere just past 70%. Time to contact tech support.

Has the CPU core limit been lifted?  


Checking now, though the engineer I need may already be indulging in some early Thanksgiving turkey. If I don't get an answer today I will recheck Monday.

Still very unstable and frequent crashing after update to SP2...Disappointed to say the least. 

Again...WHO CARES ABOUT POINT CLOUDS AND VR IF I CAN'T EVEN DRAW A HOUSE EFFICIENTLY.

 

Burning hours.

Does SP2 fix the Mac OS Mojave problems?

Jeff Miller

It's intended to I believe , but I haven't seen any official announcement to say so.  I have seen a note saying the majority are fixed, but printing is an issue.

I opted to finally upgrade to Mojave yesterday and have been working all morning with no issues (VW19 sp2). I'm mostly developing 3d furniture models, not any complex architectural work. I think Andrew nailed it..no official announcement but Jim did post confirmation that VW has worked through the majority of Mojave conflicts other than some printing issues.

Looking at the SP1.1 update for 2019 and I notice landmark gets site model updates? Did architect get these updates as well? 

 

Landmark:

Site Model - Multiple corrections to sculpting interface and graphical appearance

Plant Catalog - Corrected an problem related to deleting plants from a custom catalog

Foliage - Fixed an issue that caused the tool to be unusable on certain hardware configurations

Plants - Corrected a plant graphic issue tied to using Best Performance graphics

Landscape Area - Stability improvements

Site Model - Site Model from Boundary should now display it’s tooltip as expected

Yes, sorry for the confusion. I sorted them by area of interest, I didn't mean to imply the fixed listed below each category were only for a namesake module.

Any news on 137206? Roof textures by class not working.


I see this and a number of semi related roof and roof component attribute issues marked as fixed in SP3, but they were not marked as fixed in time for SP2.

Hmmm, I just tried testing 2 site model that were completed in 17 and tried to open and test with 19.  Both seemed to have locked up VW19 SP2 after several attempts.  Guess Ill try a reboot?

The limit is still in place, however some good news: We have not detected any threading-related problems in tessellation, so the engineers in charge of the VGM are discussing removing the limit completely. I will keep an ear on this as it affects a lot of my work as well, and if there ends up being a way to enable more cores prior to an update, (this is possible but only something id push for if we don't plan to simply unlock it in the near future) I will post.

Am I the only one mildly frustrated with the current process of updating. Please direct me to a post about the updater if it exists already.
