Free Updates for Manifold Products

Updates are great!

Please Read Carefully

Very Important: Updates to Manifold Release 9 or Manifold Release 8 require a working Manifold Release 9 or Manifold Release 8 license. If you do not have a license you will not be able to use updates. Any questions about updates require a tech support token. See the Contact Support page.

Updates are Free

If you are a licensee of Manifold Release 9 or Manifold Release 8, at any time you may download and install the latest version of the software for your license at no charge. Versions are identified by a release number. The release number for the software you have installed will be reported in the Help - About dialog. If the current release is newer, you should download and install it. Newer releases fix bugs and add new features.

Uninstalling an older release and installing a newer release for that same product will not change the activation status on that computer. For example, if Manifold Release 8 has been activated on your computer you can uninstall it and re-install a newer release of Release 8 as many times as you like and it will still be activated with no need to expend an additional Activation key. Make sure you do all uninstallations and installations using the Administrator login.
