I want to update my Home Designer software program to the most recent release.  How do I do that?


To update your Home Designer product to the latest version, follow these instructions:

  1. Launch your Home Designer program and choose to Open an existing plan, or start a New Plan file.

  2. Next, click on the Help menu, then select Download Program Updates

This will open your default browser to the program updates page of our website, where you can follow the instructions to download the latest update.

If you are already up-to-date, you will see a page that displays this message:

"Thank you for choosing to download the latest updates to your software. At this time you appear to have the latest available program update. Please check back periodically for the latest updates to your software by selecting
Help> Download Program Updates from the menu within your application."

You can also review the Program Updates page for current version program updates, or the Updates Archive for discontinued version updates.

If you are wanting to purchase an upgrade to a more advanced version of the software than you currently have, or if you are using a discontinued version of the software and want to upgrade to the current version, please see the Software Discounts page, or contact our Sales team directly.
