Installation error for ArchiCAD 13 on Snow Leopard

Hej,

I just downloaded the installer for ArchiCAD 13 (Mac version) from the https://myarchicad.com/ website. But when I run it nothing happens! A look in the system logs reveal the following messages:

2009-11-25 20.51.40 [0x0-0x80080].ArchiCAD Installer[768] [LaunchRunner Error] The main class "run" could not be found.

Has anyone else experienced the same problem? Has anyone succeeded in installing ArchiCAD 13 on Snow Leopard? Does anyone know of a fix for this problem?

Would much appreciate help on this matter!

Regards,

No

Yes , have been running it for a while.

Does anyone know of a fix for this problem?

have not seen it in the forums. You can try downloading the installer again to see is it was corrupt.

Just in case AC13 is mactel only it will not run on PPC systems.

Thanks for the reply!

I finally figured out what the problem was. I downloaded the installation dmg-file through Firefox, but for some reason the download was aborted before it finished, which of course resulted in an incomplete installation file. I tried it several times with the same result. When I attempted to download the file through Safari it worked perfectly. So now I have AC13 installed and working nicely!

Still looking?
