Thanks!! The new stuff looks great. A lot of time savers.

How are the gadgets updated? All the ones I tried will only install for versions 8.0 or 8.5?

Thanks again...

Is any new clip art included that didn't come with 8.5?

I just tried to upgrade to Aspire V9 from VCP8.5 and it says

Product Unavailable
The requested product is not currently available. Please contact us at orders@fastspring.com for assistance.

I did send an e-mail to orders@fastspring.com. I believe the link is broken?

I logged on to my portal, there's a note that I get a free upgrade to V9. It says to "go to your software to download it now" when I do so and click "check of upgrades" it says I have the latest version (V8.5)

What am I doing wrong?

I think they want you to download the software and clip-art from your portal account. That's what I did.

Do you have a button about halfway down the page, on the left, that says "View Software", under the words Your Software?

After browsing around I found the answer. I could copy the folders from "C:\ProgramData\Vectric\VCarve Pro\V8.5\Gadgets" to "C:\ProgramData\Vectric\VCarve Pro\V9.0\Gadgets". The gadgets I tried seem to work OK.

Hi,

Unfortunately there was a broken link here. This has now been updated and you can upgrade from VCarve Pro to Aspire via your V&CO Portal Account.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Enjoy V9!

Be sure to backup your tool database, post processor files and any other files you want to keep before you upgrade or you will be spending time recovering those data files!

Just a Thought!

The V9 installation does not overwrite the previous versions of those files and, unlike previous versions, will ask you if you want to copy them over to the new installation.
