Release Notes - ArchiCAD 14 Hotfix-6 (Build 4204)

for BIM Server and ArchiCAD

This Hotfix includes important Teamwork related bugfixes and solves Data-loss problems. The hotfix applies to all components: ArchiCAD, BIM Server, BIM Server Manager, EcoDesigner, Virtual Building Explorer, MEP Modeler and all other GRAPHISOFT-distributed Add-Ons and Goodies. It applies to all (Commercial, Educational and Trial) license types. Note: The same Hotfix applies to all language version of ArchiCAD. However, due to the testing process the Hotfix is not released for all languages at the same time. Use ArchiCAD's "Check for updates..." command in the Help menu to determine if the Hotfix has been released for your language or not. If you have landed on this page from any other source, please wait until ArchiCAD prompts you to update or the Hotfix is available through "Check for updates..."

Notice to users who have both ArchiCAD 15 and ArchiCAD 14 installed

ArchiCAD 15 Hotfix 2 (build 3602) should be applied together with ArchiCAD 14 Hotfix 6. This should be done,  to address Activity Monitor problems common to both BIM Server modules. These fixes will only be fixed completely if both modules are fixed simultaneously. To emphasize, you only need to apply this if you have the ArchiCAD 15 BIM Server module installed.


About the installer:

the Hotfix process will automatically search your computer for instances of three applications (in this order):

  1. ArchiCAD 14 (including MEP Modeler, EcoDesigner, and all Graphisoft add-ons)
  2. GRAPHISOFT BIM Server (including the BIM Server Manager, automatically installed along with the BIM Server)
  3. Standalone BIM Server Manager (This refers to the standalone BIM Server Manager, a separate application which can be optionally installed from the ArchiCAD 14 DVD)

If ArchiCAD 14 and/or the standalone BIM Server Manager are found to be installed on your machine, you can choose to either update it or not.

If the BIM Server is found to be installed on your machine, it will be automatically updated if it is not up-to-date.

If ArchiCAD 14 is already up-to-date, but one of the ArchiCAD components (e.g. MEP Modeler or EcoDesigner) is not, the installer will indicate this and you can choose to update it.


Important Note for Teamwork users:

Working in Teamwork requires that client ArchiCADs, the BIM Server Manager and the BIM Server all have the identical version number (or “build number”).

If you are running a client ArchiCAD whose version number is different than that of the BIM Server, you cannot continue working in Teamwork until the same hotfix is installed for the BIM Server. (The same is true for all the other client ArchiCADs working from the same BIM Server.)

Therefore, if you decide to update either a client ArchiCAD or a BIM Server, be aware that you must update all clients and the BIM Server so that they share the identical version number.


Installation steps:

  1. Make sure you have administrator rights on the computer. Make sure none of the ArchiCAD components are modified (e.g. renamed). If you are updating a BIM Server, also make sure that you are logged in as the user who installed it originally.
  2. When you run the hotfix package, the process will automatically search your computer for instances of the three applications listed above. For each of these applications found on your machine, you will be informed of its hotfix status (either “is up to date” or “can be updated”). 

For ArchiCAD or Standalone BIM Server Manager: 

The update of GRAPHISOFT BIM Server works a bit differently:
