Updates for both ShoWorks 2016 and ShoWorks 2012 users

Please read the following completely before downloading any update file. Versions prior to ShoWorks 2012 are no longer supported.

All patches are cumulative and update any sub-version (i.e. you do not need to use prior patches).

To update your version of ShoWorks to the most recent, first find out if you already have the most current version by selecting "About ShoWorks" from the Help menu from within ShoWorks.

To update:

  1. Download the update patch by clicking on the file below (note where you place it -- you can download and then burn it to a CD if you would like to upgrade a different computer, thus taking the CD to another computer.)

  3. Locate the file that you just downloaded and double-click on it to run the patch.
  4. Click 'Ok'.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  6. Check to make sure you had a successful update by running ShoWorks and then selecting "Help", and then "About ShoWorks" from the menu bar. Note the version.
