VW 2014+ Installation Instructions

Installing Plug-ins in Vectorworks 2014 and Higher

Vectorworks 2014 introduces a 3rd party installation procedure directly in the Vectorworks Plug-in manager.  Please follow the following procedures:

  1. The installer package must remain a zip file.  If your system automatically unzips archives, right-click on the download link and select "Save Link As" to prevent your browser from auto-expanding the download.
  2. In Vectorworks, select Tools > Plug-ins > Plug-in Manager
  3. Select the Third-party plug-ins page
  4. Click the Install... button
  5. Navigate to and select the saved installer zip file
  6. Read and confirm the EULA
  7. Vectorworks should notify you that installation is complete and to restart Vectorworks

If you experience trouble with the install script, please see the following FAQ on where plug-ins install.
