BIMcollab ZOOM and Windows 11 | 30-11-2021

We have received some reports where it is not possible to open files from BIMcollab ZOOM when working with Windows 11.
As BIMcollab ZOOM is not yet fully compatible with Windows 11, the application is not able to interact with the Windows file browser. Therefore, opening and saving files is not possible directly from the application.
We recommend to proceed with caution when considering upgrading your OS, while we are working on a compatible version of BIMcollab ZOOM. 

If you have already upgraded your system to Windows 11, you can find a few possible workarounds below:
  1. Open files
    1. Right click on an IFC file from your file browser and choose to open it with BIMcollab ZOOM
    2. Drag and drop additional IFC files from the file browser in the ZOOM navigation field
  2. Import BCF file
    1. Import the BCF file in a project in BIMcollab Cloud
    2. Connect to the space and project from BIMcollab ZOOM
    3. The issues are loaded
