Anyone installed 32bit vectorworks 2015 in Windows 7 64bit Machine.

I am getting the error on 64bit installer :-

I have installed Vectorworks 2015 SP1  in a 64bit Windows 7 machine when I open the vectorworks program it give me error “A Vectorworks Dongle could not be found. Make sure that the dongle is connected and all required drivers are installed. Vectorworks will now quit.’ 

I have un-installed and reinstalled the ''correct'' drivers for the HASP dongles.

32bit installs on 32bit machines are no problem at all

Is there any way we can install 32bit version of Vector works 2015 in 64 bit windows 7 machine.

  • Look under programdata for HASP (I think) uninstall program and remove any foating information in the registry. Try reinstalling and try again.
  • I am installing vectorworks in a newly build machine.. Still no luck.
  • Have you asked the vendor/checked the vendor documentation/checked any vendor forums? It would be surprising if they had not tested on 64 bit operating systems.
  • looked on all ventor forums and in google. no solution for the 64bit..
  • Install in a 32Bit Virtual Machine for the time.
