How can I get the latest version of Surfer?

Minor updates are free for whichever version you are running, regardless of whether that version is current or not. If you have a newer version with active maintenance, upgrades are also free. For both cases, click File | Online | Check for Update (or Help | Check for Update) to update to the newest version you are licensed for. To use this command, we recommend running the program as administrator in order to ensure that the update process will be given permission to complete the download and installation. To run Surfer as administrator, right click the Surfer desktop icon or application EXE and click Run as administrator.  



If you experience any problems with this command or would like to download the full version of the updated software, and you are running Surfer 11 or newer, you can follow these instructions to download the installer from our My Account portal: How can I download my software from the Golden Software website?


If you are using Surfer 10 or older, please email your registered Surfer serial number to Once your serial number is verified, we will send you download instructions for the most recent version of your software. To determine your serial number, click the Help | About Surfer command. The serial number is listed in the dialog. 


If you are running a previous version of Surfer and are interested in upgrading to the current version, see the article: How Do I Purchase An Upgrade?. If you are running a previous version of Surfer with expired maintenance and are interested in renewing your maintenance to get the current version, see the article: How Do I Renew My Software Maintenance?
