project from 24 to 25


Hi everyone,


Usually i keep the rule of keeping the project in the version i started it with but we we have this project at the beginning stages done with 24 but i think it would be good to have it in 25.


We have 2 files in v24 , 1 for modules and a main file where all the modules come together.


What could go wrong if i open de 24 file with version 25 and save it as 25 version ?


Could copy paste from the v24 to a new file v25 be a better solution ?


Also what is your experience so far with 25 ? still a lot of bugs or after 6 months is it already a stable version ?


thanks in advance

Hi @lmcardoso

What I can say is that you should always have host and module files in a same version, so if you are updating to 25, make sure everything is updated. Opening 24 file in version 25 is much better option than copy/pasting.
Graphisoft developed a guide for template upgrade from one version to another, there are good advices in what to pay attention when you are shifting to a new version, usually we list all differences and things to consider for features that are changed or upgraded:`

(If you are on subscription, contact your Graphisoft representative to get access to this document).

Regarding stability, Archicad 25 has update 2 which contains some bug fixes but also couple of new features, but pay attention because update 2 version is also not backward compatible. You can find all details here:

I am sure other community members will share their experience with upgrading. 

Good luck!
