Release Notes

Note: The virus protection program Sophos may interfere with the installation or auto-update of the Allplan 2017-1-9 hotfix. Sophos is working on a solution. For details, see the following FAQ provided by Technical Support: Sophos Antivirus blocks installation of the 2017-1-6 hotfix.

We edited and corrected various messages of Quality Reporter. As a result, Allplan is now more reliable.

After you had installed the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (Build 1709), you could no longer open the Allplan help. This problem is solved by this hotfix.


We enhanced WIBU licensing for Allplan in various places.

This hotfix updates WIBU licensing to version 6.50c, which enhances the processes of updating and returning licenses.

You can activate the WIBU license using License Manager in the Services application without difficulty.

Building structure

Allplan no longer issues a message when you create a building structure and switch between drawing files immediately afterwards.

Basic features

Workgroup Online

You have no problems switching from design mode to layout mode in Workgroup Online projects with layout structures. The program now loads the Allplan_BIM_LayoutStructure.xml file.

Libraries - Python Parts

We enhanced Python Parts in various places.


When running Windows 10, the program no longer issues a message when you enter an index date and checker date in ‘Layout and Project Attributes’.


When you delete individual layers from multilayer finishing surfaces, the ‘Room’ dialog box updates the attributes correctly.


Bar Reinforcement

We enhanced the 'Check number of pieces for partial and full schemas’ tool. When you check linear placements with partial schemas (without a full schema), the program does not change the bars in the views even when the ‘Dimension line text’ label parameter is selected.

Precast Elements

Planbar starts more rapidly on computers running Windows 7.
