Upgrading to the latest release

Upgrading to the latest release

Maintained users may upgrade free of charge.

To find out if your Quiksoft program is up-to-date use its 'Check for latest updates...' option on its Help menu.

To download you must first login, or if this is your first time here, create an account. To create an account click Register, you will receive instructions via email, we will then send an email confirming that your login details have been approved.

Once logged in you will be able to access the site's Downloads menu and download the latest Setup program.

Each Quiksoft program has its own Setup program. Using Quikjoint as an example its Setup program is of the form 'QJ32-851.exe' where the last three digits is the release number (in this case release 8.51).

We recommend that you retain the Setup program in a folder 'Quiksoft downloads' on your computer.

It's simplest if the upgrade is performed from a client to the server. The Setup program must have administrator privileges to the server. It's possible to install directly to the server, but ensure that the selected path names are 'as seen' by other computers on the network (Browse through My Network Places, do not select 'C:').

  • Download the setup program.
  • Run the Setup program, in the second screen leave 'Network server' selected. In the next screen choose 'Add/Upgrade'.
  • Follow the Setup program's prompts and finally click 'Finish'.
