Installing Add-ons

Anonymous

Hello everyone,
new in this forum, 3 yrs user of archicad, new user of add-ons (ALMOST).
Here's the problem. as a student i have downloaded the educational version of AC16 and also the add-ons (i actually just need archiquant), but when i move them into the specific add-on folder, nothing happens in AC (-> in the design menu-design extra) there's no archisuite to select (just truss maker).
if i go in add-on manager, there they are, all of them, but no ida what's going on.
can please someone help me out?
thankss

Check that they are selected in the Add-On Manager.
Check that they are added to your Work Environment.

Where did you put the ArchiSuite?. The right path for Windows is:

c:\ProgramFiles\Graphisoft\ArchiCAD 16\Add-Ons\ ArchiSuite\

Try Work Environment > Command Layout Schemes > Menus: Set the List (center panel) to All Commands by Theme then scroll down to 17 Add-Ons and see if there is a Archiquant or ArchiSuite folder containing the commands. Then drag these commands to the Menubar location where you want them. After adding the commands, select the Command Layout Schemes on the left panel and either Store as... or Redefine to save these settings as part of your Work Environment.

from where did you download the Add-ons ? ( that should be from the my ArchiCAD webpage )

I'm not a mac user but I would suggest a clean re install ....

The latest screen shot you posted shows the add-ons installed are not Student versions.
Anyway, contact Cigraph and you will get the needed support.

I emailed them like 5 times in the last 4 weeks, and still no answer. by the way seems strange they are not EDU since on the download page there are just educational products...

You should phone them instead to send e-mail.
Anyway, do the following:
1. Start GSReport application (it's in the same folder where you find ArchiCAD)
2. Wait till it collect all the needed info
3. Click on "Edit"
4. Type a description
5. Click on "Send later"
6. Type a name and choose the desired destination for the report file
7. Send me it
