Download Current Version

Current Version is 6.23.1 dated 07/23/2012

The links on this page allow active Software Subscription Plan (SSP) members and recent customers to easily update to the most recent version of VEDIT.

NOTE: To check if you are eligible for a free update to the current version, start your current VEDIT and select {Help, About}. If your "Support expires..." is later than today, -OR- "Eligible for updates through..." includes the current version number, then you are eligible for a free update and your current serial number will work with the new version.

Step 1:

Check if a newer version is available.

In VEDIT, select the menu item {HELP, About} to determine what version you have. If it is older than the current version, you may want to update.

VEDITLOG.TXT gives a brief, one-line, listing of recent enhancements, changes and bug fixes.
WHATSNEW.TXT gives a short description of recent enhancements.

The current version is: VEDIT 6.23.1 dated 07/23/2012.

Step 2:

Check that your support period is still active.

In VEDIT, select the menu item {HELP, About} to determine when your support period expires. If your support has expired, you can download any updates you are entitled to from the updates page. If you purchased 6.2, you are eligible to download all 6.2x updates. If you did not purchase 6.2, you will need to purchase the update and Software Subscription Plan on-line.

Step 3:

Download and install the desired file(s).

If you have a fast connection, we suggest downloading the files that include the VEDIT manuals as .PDF files. The .PDF files can be opened from VEDIT's {HELP} menu.

Alternatively, you can download just the Windows version without the .PDF files. See the instructions below.

Note: If you did not explicitly purchase VEDIT Pro64, the 64-bit version will only run as a trial version.

Instructions for .EXE files

  1. Download the desired .EXE file into a temporary directory such as c:\temp; do not download it into a directory already containing VEDIT.
  2. Run the .EXE file (e.g. by double-clicking on it). (They are self-extracting "zip" files.)
  3. Running the VPA-xxxx.EXE file immediately starts the installation. You can install or update the Windows version. Running the V64-xxxx.EXE file immediately starts the installation. It will install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of VEDIT for Windows. Note: if you did not explicitly purchase VEDIT Pro64, the 64-bit version will only run as a trial version. Running the VPW-xxxx.EXE file immediately starts the installation. You can install or update only the Windows version. Select the [Quick] installation option. This will install the new version with the fewest questions. It will transfer the configuration and keyboard layout from the previous version to the new version.
  4. After installation, run VEDIT, select {HELP, Topics} and go to the "What's New" topic. This summarizes the new features and has links to their full description.

Instructions for .ZIP files

  1. After downloading a .ZIP file, you must unzip it with WinZip, Pkunzip, or a similar program.
    • With WinZip, open the ".ZIP" file and select the "Install" function or icon. This extracts the files into a temporary directory and runs the "setup" program to start the installation. (The temporary files are then automatically deleted after the installation is done.)
    • With Pkunzip for Windows, open the ".ZIP" file and first extract the file into a temporary directory such as "c:\temp". Next, run the "setup" program to start the installation.
    • Note: just double-clicking the "setup.exe" file in the Pkunzip window before extracting the files does not work. In our opinion, Pkunzip for Windows is more difficult to use than WinZip.
  2. Run the "setup" program to install the Windows version.
  3. Continue with step 3 above for .EXE files.
