ArchiCAD 17 Hotfix #8
ArchiCAD 17 Hotfix-8 package (build 8000) was released yesterday. You can read about all the details and download the hotfix (if your ArchiCAD isn’t set to automatically notify you) here. There are a whole host of updates, from BIMx fixes to speed improvements to crash fixes. Most importantly it includes various compatibility fixes for OS X 10.10 Yosemite, such as:
- 180356 BIMx/CRASH: BIMx doesn’t crash any more at startup on MAC OSX 10.10
- 181757-182044 CRASH: ArchiCAD could crash on startup on MAC OS 10.10 Yosemite
If this Hotfix doesn’t resolve any lingering ArchiCAD 17 + MAC OSX 10.10 Yosemite issues you have, check the Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite page on the Help Center for additional answers. And just as importantly, make sure to report any issues back to Graphisoft. The clock is ticking, as once ArchiCAD 19 and especially OSX 10.11 arrive, ArchiCAD 17 will probably get no more love.

Remember to update everyone using Teamwork 2 (including the BIM Server) at the same time. And don’t forget that 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.
