Program Updates  

To see if your Windows based program from Elite Software needs an update, open the program and then click the menu "Help | Check for Update." The Elite Software Update Manager will then show you whether or not you need an update.

If your program doesn't have a "Check for Update" menu, then click "Help | About [program name]" and read the version number on the program's About box. Then compare that number to the one in the table below. If you do need an update, click the download file link for your program in the right-hand column of the table below. When prompted whether to Run or Save the file, click Run.

Frequently Asked Questions about Updating

I installed an update and my program is now set to the demo level. How do I make it active again?
First insert the installation CD we sent you with your order into the CD drive (or if your order was prior to July 2005, insert the license floppy disk into the floppy drive). If the Elite Software Program Installer window opens, close it. Then open the program you updated and click the menu "Help | About [program name]." Then on the About box, click the Copy License File button. If your license is on the Elite CD, then on the Browse for Folder dialog select the "License" folder on the CD drive and click OK. If your license is on a floppy disk, then select the floppy disk drive on the Browse for Folder dialog and click OK.

After I click the download file in the table above, should I click Run or Save?
Either one will work, but clicking Run may make things a little easier. If you click Save, be sure to save the file in a folder where you can find it after it finishes downloading, and to avoid problems be sure to save it in a new folder that doesn't have any other files in it.

Is there any charge for the update?
Usually not, but there is a charge if your program is behind in the first part of its version number, or in the tenths place of the second part. For example, suppose the current version of a program is 7.22.123. If you have version 6.07.50, you would need to pay for the update because the first number is out of date. If you had 7.02.158 you would also need to pay for an update because the tenths place of the second number is out of date. But if your version is 7.20.6 the update to 7.22.123 would be free.

Why are update prices cumulative?
Because each update builds on each of the previous updates, plus it includes new features. Update prices are usually just a fraction of the full purchase price, so we believe you'll find that it always make sense to stay up to date with the latest version.

Will Elite Software give me technical support if my program is out of date?
Only if the first part of the version number is no more than one version behind the current version, and if it has not been more than a year since the new version was released.
