Archicad and ecodesigner

Not applicable
I am a student and a bit of a novice with Archicad so I apologize if this is a basic question. I have used Archicad for several projects because I am a mac user and I am trying to use the ecodesigner plug-in for my sustainable systems class and it never lets me actually start the evaluation. Is this because I'm using Archicad 12 the educational version. I have tried different models at different stages and it never works. Please help does anyone know how to trouble shoot this situation?

The student version is a full version. You just have to complete the data. Anywhere there is an exclamation mark there failed data. . . .
The Educational version of ArchiCAD 12 was (on Mac) incompatible with Ecodesigner plugin when you run Snow Leopard.

It works fine with ArchiCAD 13 + new version of Ecodesigner.

I could only run the simulation in r12 when using the trial version. And fonts did not show up in the report.
