VectorWorks Will Not Start After 12.0.1 Update

Recommended Posts

I installed the 12.0.1 update without any problems. The installer said that the installation was successful. Now when I try to start VW I get the following message:

Application Launch Failure

The application "VectorWorks" could not be launched because of a shared library error:





(PowerMac G4 MDD, Dual 1.25Ghz, OS 10.4.2)

I just installed 12.0.1 on my Powerbook G4 1.33, OSX10.4.4. I did not start it up immediately but first ran the disk utility to correct permissions and then did a restart. I have no idea if this is the cause of your problem, but I have had no trouble starting back up again in VW12.0.1. Perhaps worth a try.

How stupid of me. I know that the number one rule after installing any new software is to do a repair permissions. I just flat out forgot to do it. Unfortunately VW is on my Mac at home so I?ll have to wait until after work to give it a try.

Thanks, for reminding me to stick to the rules.
