A serial number gives you access to your Vectorworks program.
Your serial number also determines which modules you can access in Vectorworks.
The steps below will allow you to change a serial number.
- Open your Vectorworks
- Open the menu Tools/Settings/Vectorworks Preferences.
- Go to the General tab
- Click on “Serial numbers…” at the top right
- Delete the active serial number using the “Delete” button and add the new serial number via “Add…”
- Click OK. Vectorworks will start working with the new serial number after the program has been restarted.
Each time you enter a serial number in Vectorworks, a new activation will also occur. Minimize serial number switching to avoid activation issues.
A student serial number always contains access to all modules. The serial number change is only required when the serial number entered is no longer active.
