Nvivo for Mac is coming soon. Nvivo recently announced a free public beta of Nvivo for Mac available in March 2014, with a commercial version being released in the summer of 2014. When the commercial version is released, we will be able to install it on any university-owned Mac computer with our campus site license.
Nvivo 10 Service Packs
Nvivo has released a couple of new service packs in the last few months. The latest, Nvivo 10, Service Pack 4 was released in October 2013. These service packs include new features such as ‘Auto-coding’, the ability to import PNG files, SurveyMonkey and Mendeley Support, as well as other bug-fixes. To see the complete list of changes and download the update, visit Nvivo’s website.
A user I was working with was unable to open her Nvivo file. This was an Nvivo 9 file that had been converted to Nvivo 10: more about Nvivo version compatibility here. When clicking on the file she received the message ‘The project <file path>\<project name> could not be opened, due to an unexpected error’. Nvivo’s support pages recommend upgrading to the most recent version first. We upgraded to the latest service pack, which fixed the problem; she was able to open the file again.
*Note that we use the 32-bit version of Nvivo 10 on campus.
