There is a new software update area for everyone who uses CPC software. If you want to obtain the latest changes to your software, then visit:
and download the latest update file for your software.
It used to be that you had to download the Demo version of your software to do an update, and then carefully go through a 6-step procedure to do an update. If you updated with the Demo, it was possible to accidently overwrite your custom data files.
Now there are special files named ...UPDATE.EXE to use for updating. The (...) varies for each software package. Selecting the right ...UPDATE.EXE file is easy when you visit the update page at the link above. Since these files don't contain any of the sample data files contained in the Demos, there is no way to accidently overwrite your custom information. An update is as simple as 1-2-3:
(1) Identify and download the correct update file
(2) Find your PC's CPC software folder using Window's File Explorer
(3) Double-click the update file.
There are also detailed instructions at that page, but if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
