I am a student and a bit of a novice with Archicad so I apologize if this is a basic question. I have used Archicad for several projects because I am a mac user and I am trying to use the ecodesigner plug-in for my sustainable systems class and it never lets me actually start the evaluation. Is this because I'm using Archicad 12 the educational version. I have tried different models at different stages and it never works. Please help does anyone know how to trouble shoot this situation?

The Educational version of ArchiCAD 12 was (on Mac) incompatible with Ecodesigner plugin when you run Snow Leopard.

It works fine with ArchiCAD 13 + new version of Ecodesigner.

I could only run the simulation in r12 when using the trial version. And fonts did not show up in the report.
