Fresh install of AC26 NZE on Win10 21H2 crashes & submits bug report on load every time


Hi there.  I've just removed AC24 from our student reference image and replaced it with AC26, but can't get Archicad to load to the point where I can enter in our Education license key. I thought it might have been that I didn't have java installed, but on a second machine I installed Java and tried installing AC26 on that, and am getting the same symptoms.  Is there something I'm missing?  Neither my reference machine nor the second one have fast video cards, but this hasn't been an issue with loading AC in the past.

Thanks in advance,

I've let the bugreporter send lots of messages, and I've just looked inside one of the AC26 .rpt files and while most of it is binary data, there's some evidence that there's a file or folder that AC26 can't find/write into. Does this ring any bells for anyone?


I would get in touch with Central Innovation there in NZ and give them some of those Bug Report numbers so they can have a look.

They are usually pretty helpful.


I think this link will give you their contact details ...
