I downloaded my copy of Chief Architect and I'd like to save a copy of the installer in case I need it. How can I do this?
Making a backup copy of downloaded data like a program installer is a good idea because online vendors will rarely make a download available indefinitely.
Chief Architect is an exception in that the download will be available to you as long as you are a current Support and Software Assurance member; however, only the current program version installer will be posted in your Digital Locker page.
For archival purposes, it is a good idea to save a backup installer for all program versions that you have used.
To back up a program installer, first, decide how you want to back up the file. A variety of different options are available. You can, for example:
Save the program installer to an easy to find location, such as in a folder on your Desktop, a folder in your Documents directory, or a folder inside your Downloads folder.
The name of the file will vary depending on what version of the program installer you have, but in general, the file name will begin with the product title, followed by a version number, and ending with the .msi file extension on Windows, and .dmg on a Mac computer.
