Upgrade for the main version

  • You can upgrade the main version either by using the upgrade function or by performing a new installation and copying the customer-specific folders and data on top of the new installation.

General Information

If previous versions of the program are installed on the computer, the installation program will ask if you want to upgrade or install a new one.

  • Select installation if you wish to install a new program.
  • Select upgrade if you wish to upgrade the program.
  • If the installation program does not find the old installation, the program will not suggest an upgrade. In this case, upgrade the program according to the instructions Upgrade Across Multiple Versions.


Close all Vertex CAD programs before installing or upgrading.

Vertex G4 and Flow collaboration
