This article contains information about how to update or upgrade to the most recent version of MapViewer.
Minor updates (e.g. version 8.0 to 8.1) may be downloaded for free if your serial number is registered. Connect your computer to the internet, open MapViewer, and click click the File | Online | Check for Update command. This will download and install the latest update on your machine. Information about the latest version is listed on the Version Info page.
If you are running Windows Vista, 7, 8, or 10 we suggest running MapViewer as Administrator and then using the File | Online | Check for Update command. To run a program as Administrator, right click over the MapViewer desktop icon or application EXE file 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 the current version or the version just prior to the current version, you can log into the My Account portal on the Golden Software website, click the My Products link on the left side, expand your version of MapViewer, and then click the Download MapViewer Installer link to the right of your serial number.
If you are using an older version of MapViewer, please contact us with your registered MapViewer serial number. Once your serial number is verified, we will send you download instructions. To determine your serial number, click the File | About MapViewer command. The serial number is listed in the dialog.
Major upgrades (e.g. version 7 to version 8) are available for US $139 plus shipping. Click the My Account button at the top right of the Golden Software webpage for more information.
