for Commercial, Educational and Trial license types

This Hotfix includes important fixes for bugs discovered since the original release of ARCHICAD 12 (Build 2156). This Hotfix can be applied to any builds of ARCHICAD 12 (Build 2156 and above).

Important install notes:

Install steps:

  1. Download the Hotfix by clicking on the file name on the previous page.
  2. Exit ARCHICAD before you start the installer.
  3. Make sure that you have administrator rights on your computer.
  4. Make sure that components of your ARCHICAD installation were not renamed. The Hotfix will not reinstall missing components and will ignore components that are renamed.
  5. If ARCHICAD was installed while connected to a network, make sure you are connected to the same network. This is especially important for laptops.
  6. Double-click on the downloaded file to start the installer. To run the installer, Java version 6 has to be installed on your computer. You can install Java version 6 from your original ARCHICAD install CD.
  7. Follow the instructions of the wizard to complete the installation.


In certain cases OS X will give the following error when you try to mount a GRAPHISOFT provided dmg downloaded from the Internet: .app is damaged and can’t be opened. You should eject the disk image.This problem can be easily circumvented by setting the Gatekeeper setting to Anywhere. After that the dmg should mount fine. The installers on the installation DVD are not affected, this issue seems to be related only to downloaded packages.
