Where download Archicad 17 installers and older


When I opened archive page with info about old versions Archicad

I opened info about Archicad 17 and see


Note: All the downloads specific to your language version of Archicad can be found under Archicad’s Help Menu / Archicad 17 Downloads



Then I opened download page

And see that minimum availabe for download version Archicad is version 18


So... How download installers for Archicad 17 and older versions the software?


Barry Kelly

Why do you need an older version?

Do you have to work in that version, or is it just to open an old file.


Current versions can open any file back to version 10.

If you need to access files older than 10, there are file converters that can do that.


Pre version 17, the software was distributed on discs and not digitally.

If you need to access much older files for archive purposes then go here:


As Barry said, all current versions will open any file from Archicad 10 onwards.
