Cigraph Dongle

If you already have a Cigraph Dongle, after buying or updating ArchiSuite, you have to load your Dongle, updating it with the authorization to use the product you bought.

Warning: if you still haven't bought or updated anything, you can't update your dongle.

Go to the Cigraph on-line store

Exactly like you're used to do with the ArchiCAD dongle, you need to be connected to internet with a computer with ArchiCAD installed, or at least the wibu deriver (for those who use ArchiCAD with the Codemeter dongle, don't forget to install the wibu driver), and the Cigraph Dongle connected to one of your USB ports.

Use MS Explorer or Apple Safari (not all the other browsers are compatible with the WIBU dongle management software).

To load the Cigraph Dongle is very easy and automatic: you simply must connect to the web page related to this.

Cigraph Dongle Update

If the computer where ArchiCAD is installed is not connected to internet, you can update your Cigraph dongle on another computer (only the wibu driver installation is required) . Another option is the .rtu file: you must contact us, the .rtu file which will be sent to you by e-mail (the file can be received at any workstation with an internet connection).
Copy the .rtu file to the computer where the Cigraph Dongle is connected (and ArchiCAD is installed), then continue as described in the Guide (some instructions are different on Windows or Apple).
The Cigraph Dongle requires the Wibu driver, so, if you use a wibu dongle for ArchiCAD, your computer shouldn't find any trouble in "talking" to the Cigraph Dongle, anyway you can always download the most recent Wibu driver if needed.

ArchiSuite System Requirements
The add-ons require the same configuration as your version of ArchiCAD.


ArchiCAD Version
ArchiSuite is compatible with ArchiCAD 13 and subsequent versions and it does not work with previous versions of ArchiCAD.
A special version of ArchiSuite is available for ArchiCAD Start Edition and subsequent versions (ArchiSuite for ArchiCAD Start Edition is NOT compatible with the full ArchiCAD version).
Installing the package
Select the ArchiSuite folder and after extracting it, copy it to the add-ons folder in the ArchiCAD folder on your computer. If installed correctly, when you next launch ArchiCAD, the Design menu will include a submenu providing access to ArchiSuite.
Custom Work Environment
If you use custom work environments, the add-on menu might not appear automatically in the ArchiCAD Design menu.
To show the Work Environment Manager dialog, click on Options/Work Environment.
Use this dialog to configure your custom work environments to include the menu for the new add-on.
Managing the object library
We recommend not moving the libraries used by the add-on from their original location (in the same folder as the add-on).
Here they will be managed automatically by the add-on and you will not experience any difficulty loading them.
