Update History

Installation over previous versions

With the release 149 we are preparing for the updates to our next major version 10. Some changes are made to the installers so the install path will be compatible with the future releases. Most of your settings should remain intact after the update. The previous version should be uninstalled before installing versions 149 or newer. Always keep a backup of your initial installation before upgrading.

Windows 10

All our applications (Designer & Showroom) are compatible with Windows 10, both 32 and 64 bits. Remember to install Office 32 bits if you want to send emails directly from Designer or Showroom 9.5. 64 bits version will be available with the release Designer and Showroom 10.

Firebird update

A new update of the Firebird database is now available. Firebird 2.5.8 was released on January 5, 2018. We recommend all of our users to update their installation with the latest version.

Firebird 2.5.8 is available in 32 and 64 bits for both Windows and Mac OSX. Make sure you install the version that will fit the best for your configuration. The 64 bits version should be installed on any 64 bits operating system.
