My Support and Software Assurance is current. How do I upgrade to the latest version of Chief Architect?
Upgrading to the latest Chief Architect version can be done by signing in to your Chief Architect Online Account, clicking on the Digital Locker: Downloads, Product Keys & License Management link, and then selecting the UPGRADE button next to your active license. Once you click UPGRADE, you will be prompted with the following message:
"Product key XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX is eligible for upgrade: Your product key will remain the same between versions in most cases. Any older program versions present on your system will NOT be modified by installing the new version. Upgrade now?
Click UPGRADE to continue the upgrade process, or CANCEL to avoid making any changes and return to the digital locker.
Once an upgrade is complete, the latest version of Chief Architect will appear in your account. Select the DOWNLOAD button to proceed with downloading and installing the Chief Architect version you upgraded to.
Any current program installation(s), plan files, or other local program content will not be modified or removed upon upgrading. Each version of Chief Architect is an independent installation, and will install separately from any and all previous installations.
It is always a good idea to backup your previous versions installer file.
