Thank you for the post.  We do not have a version of Room Planner that will run on Windows or  Mac OS X. You can open plans created in Room Planner in our desktop software for Windows and Mac (Chief Architect and Home Designer).  You can also run the desktop software on mobile computers such as a laptop or Microsoft Surface (system requirements permitting).  You can use a Bluetooth laser distance meter with the desktop software for capturing as-built floor plans.


If you would like to pass on your thoughts about running Room Planner on a full operating system you can send and email to us at  We would be interested in learning more about why you are interested in running Room Planner on Windows and how you would envision using Room Planner on a device like a surface as apposed to a mobile device running android or iOS.


Kind regards,


Derek Pedersen

Chief Architect Sales

      I have been using the Room Planner mobile app on my iPad for years and now it’s no longer available in the App Store so I suspect it might get glitchy and whenever I get a new iPad I won’t be able to download Room Planner on it, and so I guess I better get going with some alternative with the same features. What I love about the Room Planner mobile app is that it’s not a ‘game’ like a lot of the other ‘3D Planner’ type apps that I have been trying out. I don’t need a replacement app to be free, but I also don’t have $1799 to spend for a desktop version. I use the app for interior design. 
      Can anyone recommend an alternative mobile app that is as awesome or almost as awesome as Room Planner is/was? Thank you!

      FYI - I'm new to Chief Architect Home Designer 2016 and Room Planner iPad app. 
      I created a simple plan (square room with a few wall and base cabinets) on room planner and saved it to the cloud (Green Cloud icon). I closed the app and reopened it to make sure the changes were saved. Then I go over to Home designer 2016 Architectural (Trial) and  -> create a new design -> and go to import and then "Import Room Planner File". I put in my credentials and see the designs I've. The thumbnail that is displayed for all my plans do show the rooms with the cabinets as it does in the iPad app. The issue is that when i select and import the file, I only see the outline of the room but not cabinets. I did a 3D perspective overview but I only see the walls. No cabinets at all. Am I doing something wrong or is this how the import feature is designed to work? Does it matter i'm using the Trial version of Home Designer? I even went ahead and saved a sample plan that was full of cabinets and rooms but same result. Attached are just a few images of what i see. Any other details needed just let me know.
      Thanks in advance for the help everyone.
