unethical and abusive to users. It hurts the entire software industry, casting a dark shadow over legitimate and honorable developers like Gammadyne.
To download a program, click here and click the appropriate "Download" link. A window similar to this will appear:
Click the "Save File" button. The file will begin to download. When it finishes, open the file you just downloaded. A window like this will appear:
Click the "Yes" button to start the installation.
The installers are very simple. The only decision is where on the hard drive the program should be installed. We recommend using the default location.
- Newer versions may be installed over old versions without uninstalling first.
- Project files are always compatible across all versions.
- Installing to a network location is not permitted, although the installer can be run from the network.
- Each installer is completely self-contained. Installers are always the complete product, there are no patches.
The most common cause of this is a faulty download. Delete the downloaded file (so that the browser does not cache it), then re-download it.
Another possible cause is a virus. Viruses modify executable files when infecting them, which in turn can cause the installer to report that it is corrupt. Please sweep your system for malware.
download the new version from our website, and install it over the old version. For minor upgrades (such as 1.0 to 1.1), the upgrade is free and the product will remain activated. For major upgrades (such as 1.0 to 2.0), the software will require reactivation. Open the Help menu, choose "Product Activation", enter your License ID, and click "Activate". This will consume one activation from your account. If all activations are used up, please purchase another license here.
5. When I install a new version over an old one, the installer reports that an .EXE file could not be overwritten.This is almost always caused because the application is still running. The installer will replace the file during the next reboot.

Once moved, the software must be activated with your License ID. This will consume one activation from your license. If all activations are used up, please purchase a new license here.

It may help to clear the browser's cache, or to try a different browser. Holding down the Shift key while clicking the hyperlink may bypass the cache.
