I haven't tried Archipack previously but anyways, after going like this:
enter image description here

and when I click on Windows it shows up this black patch in middle of the viewport:
enter image description here

I tried Wall and it worked well as it added a wall type mesh, but in this case windows aren't showing up, that black patch covers my viewport..

Blender's official Archipack addon require additional setup steps in order to work. Preferences -> Add-ons -> archipack -> Setup Actions -> Render Thumbs

From: https://github.com/s-leger/archipack/issues/88

I confirm the new version of Archipack for Blender 2.8+ needs to run the setup option "Render preset thumbs" in order to show in the tool window on the 3D view. It will open a terminal window (on Windows 7) showing the process. Wait for the messages to finish coming and it sould be ready to use. Process

Result

    $\begingroup$ Download material library from archipack's guthub repo before rendering thumbs so they will get materials assigned both in thumbnails images and at create time. github.com/s-leger/archipack/wiki/Materials $\endgroup$
