In the following pages, we take you through the process of installing the ARCHICAD program at a stand-alone workstation.
Simply insert the ARCHICAD DVD into your computer’s DVD-ROM drive, or download ARCHICAD 20 to your computer.
Insert the ARCHICAD DVD, or double-click (extract) the ARCHICAD 20 Download folder. The start-up presentation will be launched.
Click on Install GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD to start the ARCHICAD Installation Wizard.
Click Next to continue.
On this page, define the file path of the installation. As a rule, you should choose the path suggested by default, to simplify the installation of any future updates.
With the “Typical” installation option (recommended), you will install ARCHICAD 20 together with all of its components (e.g. Library, documentation, ARCHICAD Help).
This screen summarizes your chosen configuration, so you can make any needed corrections to the installation settings.
Click Install to begin installation.
This screen appears if the installer detects an earlier version of ARCHICAD on your machine. If you choose Yes, your latest Work Environment settings from the older-version ARCHICAD will be imported to ARCHICAD 20.
Note: When you import the Work Environment settings of an older version of ARCHICAD, the new features and commands of ARCHICAD 20 will not automatically be visible. In this case, use the Work Environment Menu settings to include the new commands.
Review the setting to Enable ARCHICAD to Check for Updates automatically (checked by default).
Click Finish to complete the installation process. You may be prompted to restart your computer.
