  7. Click on the appropriate product to display your personal download site:
  8. Your personal download site is shown and you can download the latest version of QCAD Professional for your operating system. If you have purchased any e-books, they can also be downloaded from this site.

  11. Your personal download site stays open for one year.

Notes for Windows Users

If you are using Windows, please make sure to uninstall any old installed version(s) of QCAD before you install a new version. Do not attempt to install a new version into the same directory of an existing installation.

Notes for Linux Users

If your browser displays the file you are trying to download, please right-click the download button and choose "Save As".

Notes for Mac OS X Users

When you are trying to open the installed application for the first time, it might show a warning about the application being from an "Unidentified Developer". The first time you start QCAD, please right-click the application icon and choose "Open". Then click "Open" again in the dialog that pops up. For more information about this Mac OS X behavior, please refer to the Apple web site.
