WattPlot™ ACKcess Version 6  Release Delta Document

This page describes the changes from one release to the next, and allows existing users to update to the latest version at no extra cost (no reactivation needed).  Update downloads will only work for previously activated sites.  New users must use a different download.

To see what version of WattPlot™ ACKcess you are currently running, select the About option of the Help menu.

You do not need to un-install or re-install WattPlot ACKcess to get these updates (except where specifically noted).  Most updates are done by simply downloading a replacement ACKcess.exe file.

  1. Click on the "Download now" button below.

  2. Depending on your browser, click the "Save As", "Save", or "Copy" button, and then direct your system to save it in the folder where the older version EXE resides (which is typically c:\Program Files (x86) \WattPlot).  [NOTE: If you are using Google Chrome, it might just put the file directly into your Downloads folder.  Move it from there to your Program Files\WattPlot folder.]

  3. If it tells you that the file already exists, and asks if you want to overwrite it, click Yes.
