    13.06.629 is the first version of Grapher 13?

    I was looking for the Grapher 12 versions as well.

    Hi Nicholas,

    Yes, Grapher 13.0.629 is the first release of Grapher 13.  The version history for Grapher 12 can be found in the article Grapher 12 Version History.

    Ah, it was the .629 that confused me.

    Whens 13.1 or something due? I have to widely install any 8.0

    Hmm, and why do our current versions all say they are 12.2.14 from October 2016 but report we already have the most recent version available when we go

    File/Online/Check for Update

    Seems there are many versions since 12.2!

    Hello Nicholas,

    We don't have an official release date for 13.1, but it should be sometime within the next month or so. 

    If Grapher is telling you there are no updates available when you click File | Online | Check for Update, it sounds like you're either not connected to the internet, something is blocking Grapher from connecting to the server to verify the version, or the Internet Update files that ship with Grapher are missing. In any case, you can manually download the most recent version from My Account and install it. Instructions for doing so can be found here:

    Thanks for the reply.

    We are certainly on the Internt!

    I suppose might be files missing. Is there a packaging list?

    The report that comes back is  a Grapher pop-up message that says "No update Available - You already have the most recent version of Grapher installed on your stem); which is very explicit and surely should say something less if no actual check was done. This seems to have been leading us astray for months!

    Tried my account, but it says my last purchase was in 1998, and Ihave no products listed.

    Can you email me. We have a licence server these days, which is functioning fine.

    Hi Nicholas,

    The only valid license I see registered to you is a MapViewer license from 1998. I do not see any Grapher licenses registered to you. When you say you have a license server, does that mean you're using a concurrent license of Grapher 12? If so, you're likely eligible for a free upgrade to Grapher 13 per our maintenance program. To do so, see the Concurrent-use license section here:

    Why have you posted here instead of emailing me?  I don't have your email. And days have now been lost, because you simply posted here again.

    We need to resolve this.

    We have dozens of licences for Grapher and Surfer, many with my name attached, some dating back to pre-Windows versions.

    The newest licences are running using your network licence software (concurrent licensing) which we have been running since it was in beta.
