Trouble transfering my plug-in objects from my pc to my new mac system

Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased a mac, and along with it I bought VW 10. Now I am trying to transfer my plug-ins from the object library (custom truss drawings I have added to the resource browser) on my pc to my mac with no success. I write the whole folder to a cd and the filename is aa library.mcd. When I open the cd on my mac, vectorworks does not recognize the file type, and can not open the file. Do I need to export the file in a different file type, or is it just impossible to transfer all my work? Please help! Thanks.

As I'm sure you know, but to bear in mind that as these objects were created in versions earlier than VW10 the program will have to convert these into the VW10 file. I usually save this upon opening, and you'll then see it on your hard drive as a VW iconed file, not just a doc icon with .mcd after it.

As said before VW needs write permissions to open a file. A burnt CD does not give that of course.

Make sure you are up to date on releases. You should have 10.5.1
