HotFix Install Error

Well, this is a first.

Installing the v27.1.1 Hotfix on my ARM Mac an error popped up during installation and said the ArchiCAD 27 app is corrupt  and needs to be moved to the trash. I cancel, then proceed to complete the installation, then try to launch it. The same notice comes up. ArchiCAD cannot run and needs to be moved to the trash.

Currently downloading the base installer and will have to reinstall, then try to run the updater again.

They're charging the most in their company history for upgrade and SSA and have released the single most buggy release of ArchiCAD I can remember (since 1991). They delayed the release for four months promising  bug-free version, yet it's the buggiest. How long are going to settle for this?

I think it is a Sonoma thing.

I’ve just installed the 27.1.1 update in Sonoma 14.1.1 and it installed with no problem at all. I’ve instructed the rest of our office on a mix of Intel and ARM some with Sonoma 14.1.1 and some on the latest build of Ventura so we will see what happens there.

Hi Lee,

Just curious what License Information on your Mac shows reports after running the 27.1.1 hot fix. You'll see from my screenshot from a couple days ago that on my Mac (Sonoma + Apple Silicon like you) Archicad does not acknowledge the new version number even though it appears the hot fix did indeed run correctly.

 

I'd really like someone from Graphisoft to clear up the numbering system and what we should expect going forward.

Hi Geoff,

 

Mine shows exactly the same as yours build 4030 and 27.0.0. It is very confusing and a nightmare to manage across the office because I can't now determine who has and has not updated.

Build 4030 is the latest update to v27.
