Chief Architect Premier or Chief Architect Interiors

Home Designer Professional or Home Designer Architectural or Home Designer Suite or Home Designer Interiors


I've downloaded and installed Chief Architect software but I cannot find the software. Where did it go?


Once downloaded and installed, you can find the Chief Architect or Home Designer software in your Mac Applications folder.

To locate the software

  1. Open Finder by clicking on the Finder icon .

  2. From the menu bar at the top of the screen select the Go menu and choose Applications.

  3. In the Applications folder you will find the program.

  4. Double click on the program name to launch the software.

    You can click and drag the software from the Applications folder to your Desktop or to the Dock to create a shortcut to the software there.
