Migrating Vectorworks libraries

Libraries created in a previous Vectorworks version can be converted to your current Vectorworks. The Migration Manager allows this conversion to proceed smoothly.

  1. When you start your new Vectorworks for the first time, a window will appear asking if previous libraries need to be migrated. Click “Yes”. A new pop-up window will open. You can also manually open the Migration Manager via the menu Tools/Migration Manager
  2. Click Next
  3. Select the user folder:
    • Windows: C:\Users\ (username) \AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\VectorWorks\202X\NLD
    • MacOS: (Username)\Library\Application Support\Vectorworks\202X\NLD
  4. By default, the data will be converted to the user directory of your new Vectorworks version. If the migration is to be moved to a different folder, click Browse. Click “Next” again.
  5. For interiorcad: Make sure that the 3 options under “Insert Module Data” are checked.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Clicking “Migrate” will convert all files. Click “OK” when a new pop-up window indicates that documents are product dependent.
  8. At the end of the migration, a list of all migrated libraries appears. Click “Finish” to end the migration.
  9. For interiorcad: restart Vectorworks, this will load your materials and fittings to the database.
  10. In Resource Manager, click the action icon, and then choose the “Update Libraries” option.
