Windows XP

GRAPHISOFT supports only "Professional" Edition officially, and none of the ArchiCADs were tested by Graphisoft on "Home" Edition.
However, since the two editions only differ in their feature set ("Professional" edition has additional features, e.g. support for network domains and two physical processors), ArchiCAD works with both editions.

Windows XP 32-bit version has a limit of 2GB maximum memory address space for an application.


Windows XP support by ArchiCAD versions:


ArchiCAD 17 and newer

{i} Support for Windows XP and 32-bit system is discontinued in ArchiCAD 17.
For further details please read: Discontinued32BitSupport

ArchiCAD 16

Windows XP 32-bit and 64-bit are also supported.

Note: Windows XP 64-bit Edition is suitable for running ArchiCAD 16, but not tested by GRAPHISOFT.

ArchiCAD 15

Windows XP 32-bit and 64-bit are also supported.

Note: Windows XP 64-bit Edition is suitable for running ArchiCAD 16, but not tested by GRAPHISOFT.

ArchiCAD 14

Windows XP 32-bit and 64-bit are also supported.

ArchiCAD 13

Windows XP 32-bit and 64-bit are also supported.

  • The Archicad Installer automatically installs the proper WIBU driver, however those using Itanium Processor should download the adequate driver from http://wibu.com/download_user.php.

  • The Amyuni PDF Converter is not compatible with this platform. To keep the PDF output functionality, you must purchase the 64-bit version of Amyuni http://www.amyuni.com/en/products/index.php If you do not need Save-to-PDF functionality, only print-to-PDF, then Adobe Acrobat or any 3rd party PDF creation tool certified for 64-bit XP will work.

  • Archicad 10 is a 32 bit application, but in 64 bit Windows environment it is capable to use 2 times more, totally 4GB memory.

ArchiCAD 9

Windows XP Pro Edition is supported.

The same comments apply as with ArchiCAD 8.1. However, using ArchiCAD 9 build 2172 and higher on x64 has benefit over the 32-bit XP. Although a 32-bit application can theoretically use 4 GB memory address space, the 32-bit XP imposes a 2 Gb limitation on every application. XP x64 does not have this limit anymore, so it lets 32-bit applications - like ArchiCAD 9 - address the full 4 Gb.

As a result, you are able to build and render larger 3D models on a 64-bit system. A slight modification in the ArchiCAD 9 code was necessary to achieve this, so only build 2172 and above is able to exploit this benefit.

ArchiCAD 8.1

Runs on Windows XP Pro. ArchiCAD 8.1 was released before the arrival of 64-bit XP, but it works with the following limitations:

ArchiCAD 7.0

The first version of ArchiCAD that runs on Windows XP 32-bit.
