Download Notes
(current version 4.16)

Unless you are an experienced SARApAid upgrade installer, please read all of the following notes prior to downloading and upgrading your software:

  • If you don't have a current SARApAid license, downloading and installing the following files will activate a DEMO version of the software.  There are a few features which aren't available on DEMO versions, and forms printed with a DEMO version will have "Sample" printed across the form, and are not acceptable for submission.

  • The following downloads will work only with Windows versions XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 (including 64-bit versions).

 

Notes for licensed users - Read before downloading!

Licensed users can upgrade free at any time (upgrades time stamped within 2 years of your license activation date) by using the Update Wizard available under the SARApAid Help menu item.  If you prefer a replacement CD-ROM for your upgrade, or want to update your license file (you only need to do this if you want to upgrade your software to a version with a release date more than 2 years after your license date) see the Upgrade Order Form.

To do a manual installation of SARApAid (you should only have to do this if the Update Wizard isn't working for some reason if you have a licensed installation)...

  • Your license date (seen on the SARApAid opening screen) must read 19 Aug 2014 or later to activate the current version!  If it reads earlier than this, then this download will overwrite your licensed version and activate as a DEMO.  This process cannot be undone!
