After following the install instructions to install the Augment3d Vectorworks Plug-in, the dialog for successful installation appears but after restarting Vectorworks, the plug-in is not actually installed.

Explanation of Issue

This is most likely caused by pointing the Vectorworks Plug-in install process at the original ZIP file that includes within it all of the Augment3d Vectorworks Plug-in versions for both Mac and PC. Vectorworks does not validate nor choose the correct version automatically.


  1. Extract the zipped versions of the plug-in from the initial downloaded ZIP file

  2. Repeat the plug-in install process using the correct version .ZIP file for your version of Vectorworks
