A Frequently Asked Question

How do I upgrade to a new version?

First download the latest version, either Installer Package or No-Install Package.

A) Upgrade from the Installer Package

Close any running instance of XYplorer, and install the new version over your current one. Done.

B) Upgrade from the No-Install Package

Extract the package to your XYplorer application folder and overwrite the existing files. Done.


Whether you use method A or B, your configuration will not be overwritten, so your settings and personal license key remain intact.


If you own a Standard License you might want to check before upgrading whether your license covers the new version. You find this information under menu Help / About XYplorer. If you own a Lifetime License you don’t have to worry.
