Archicad 26 Update 5 release

Dear All,  


We are pleased to inform you that Archicad 26 Update 5 is now available in all languages for both Full (7004, 7005) and Solo (7006, 7007) versions. You will find the installers in the Updates section of our website. 


There are some changes between the Preview and the Final version of this update, so the build numbers between the two will slightly differ. However, this won’t cause any compatibility issues for those who installed the Preview version earlier; simply install the Final version of Archicad 26 Update 5, the transition will be seamless. 


This update contains important solutions and fixes. Keep in mind that this is an update; therefore, it affects Teamwork compatibility — this means all users working in the same project will need to be on the same update number.  


This update enables Archicad 26 compatibility with Cloud licensing. You can learn more about this feature in the following Community articles:
