Release Notes for ARCHICAD 17 Hotfix 8 Build 8000           

This Hotfix includes important improvements since the original release of ARCHICAD 17 (Build 3002) and solves MAC OS X 10.10 Yosemite related problems. It can be applied to any builds of ARCHICAD 17 (Build 3002 and above).

The hotfix applies to ARCHICAD, BIM Server and all other components: BIM Server Manager, BIMx, MEP Modeler and all GRAPHISOFT-distributed Add-Ons and Goodies. It applies to all (Commercial, Educational and Trial) license types.


Download

Tested for: ARCHICAD 17 AUS, AUT, BRA, CZE, FIN, FRA, GER, GRE, INT, ITA, KOR, NED, NOR, NZE, POL, POR, RUS, SPA, SWE, TAI, TUR, USA

About the installer

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

  1. ARCHICAD 17 (including MEP Modeler, Energy Evaluation 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 17 DVD)

If ARCHICAD 17 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 17 is already up-to-date, but one of the ARCHICAD components (e.g. MEP Modeler) 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.


Deployed Installation of the Update

Using Deployed Installation it is possible to distribute and install Updates on multiple computers in an automated way.
