Hi,

latest Update for OSX from link above is 243 byte and not mountable as dmg! 

Update for Windows seemed to be fine with over 150mb!

Hi,

D/l the windows update from the update page (Install_formZ_86_Pro_64_AO.exe) ....Updated without issue....Checked the start application box and closed update window ....FormZ started fine....but info window states Pro v 8.6.0.2 (Build 10027)

 

If I try the instal update again it goes into the Program Maintenance window...Modify, repair, or remove.

 

Strange; that's the version I already had installed.

 

Has it updated and the 'about box' is wrong?

 

Martin

Windows app only install?

k, tried several times to update with app only install; including d/ling again, and repair install..... It does NOT update my v 8.6.0.2 to latest v 8.6.0.3!

 

Downloaded Full install and updated .... Update worked.

 

The digital signature on 'Install_formZ_86_Pro_64_AO.exe' is dated yesterday (19th) but I can only assume it's the wrong installer?

 

Martin

Martin,

 

We are investigating the possibility that Windows is getting confused about the the "installer ownership" of the application when switching between the full installer and the App only installer.  Try to delete the /program files/formZ 8/formZ 86 pro 64/ folder and re-install.

Hi,

Yes, I gave up on the app only update; re-named my formz 8 folder with suffix old. D/l'd full install and installed.... it worked. (8.6.0.3)

 

 

The only addition in my original formz 8 folder was the plug-ins folder with an expired vray trial inside..... But, on my final attempt to install with the app only I removed the plugins with vray folder. Still didn't update (even tho' it completed the process of an update....)

 

I did check (with my limited knowledge) what files had been updated by the app only install, in the 8.6 pro folder. I could find only one item had been updated. support>launch.exe     ...All other items were still dated in the file listing as mid Feb... Which was my previous update.

 

Martin.

Hello Tech

Hello Support

Hello Formz

 
That a new «general update» comes out at the end of this month (as mentioned just above) is finally good news.
 
I beg you urgent to finally get started now and tiden up the so confused situation:
 
1) Mini-Updates, which are not precisely defined on your download site – and still have a big impact.
2) A user interface, whose faultiness is nothing to compare on the market.
And last but not least 3) A communication policy, that really tugs at the patience of many of us users.
 
Please, please: Finally clear up, there on the 3518 Riverside Drive..!
 
Best greetings from Switzerland, old Europe – Cheers!

Updated Form.z and V-ray plugins to version 10069 today hoping that it would improve performance.  I am now completely dead in the water.  I desperately need to Slice a flat planar surface that is sloping at 45 degrees (roof plane) to create a hip roof.  The program crashes every single time.  No word yet from Tech on a solution or updated release.  If I were you guys I would Stay Away from this release for now.  Now for my request: does anyone out there know how to go back to version 10053 or have another solution to my issue?  I have tried the Trim tool and it crashes every time too.  I have extruded the surface and tried to trim it as well.   For what its worth the Trim tool has been broken for way too long and has been very finicky. 

Thanks

Andrew

Andrew,

 

Without seeing your roof, can you construct a symmetrical version of your roof, then use the extend tool to match another surface you know is correct. This is a long shot but I use the extend tool extensively.  :) 

 

Hope this helps,

Really strange: The post from earlier 23. Mar 2018 with the announced «Genaral Update» seems to have been removed ...?!
