Upgrade your PROCAD software

Why Upgrade?

Upgrading your PROCAD software will give the latest tools to optimize the software’s new features.

Best of all, software upgrades are free of charge for all customers with monthly or yearly licenses.

The following information details how to upgrade to the latest version of PROCAD software.

If you have a NETWORK license or a 3DSMART license, it is best to contact our support team for assistance via:

Step 1

For those of you with STANDALONE installations, it is an easy upgrade.

Scenario 1

If you have the PLUS version with built-in AUTOCAD OEM, simply download the latest version of the software using the 15-day Free Trial from our website. It is a separate and completely functional install and will not affect your current installation.

Scenario 2

If you require the version which works with your existing AUTOCAD installation (version 2022 thru 2019) download the software from the following link:

https://procad.com/procad-downloads/

For both scenarios, once the software is downloaded and installed, try it to ensure everything is running smoothly.

Step 2

Then it’s simply a matter of transferring your current data information. The easiest way is to copy the folders from the current installation to the new installation.

Your data files should be in a folder similar to the one below. For this example, we’re using the existing 2020+ PROCAD and copy to the latest 2022+ PROCAD.

C:\ProgramData\PROCAD\2D Plus 2020\

Simply copy the entire folder structure from here and copy/paste it into the same folder in the new software.

C:\ProgramData\PROCAD\2D Plus 2022\

Step 3

License Return Feature

For those with 1-year or 3-year licenses, you’ll need to return your current version’s license.

You can do this through the License Manager module.

After the new version is downloaded and tested, you can then re-activate the license for the new version.
