Product News & Information

WHY IT IS NECESSARY TO HAVE THE LATEST BUILDS

What is a Build?
A Build, also referred to as a “Patch”, is a software update that serves to improve the performance and stability of the program. It is part of an ongoing software development process aimed at producing error free software. A build does not necessarily add new features to the program but will sometimes only enhance the existing package.

If you are running the latest version of the software, then all known errors should be fixed. It is therefore important to have the latest version of the software which may be downloaded and installed from our website www.allycad.com. In addition to this, it is also advisable to ensure that you have the latest driver updates for your pc i.e. printer drivers and/or graphic card drivers and that you have the latest updates of Windows installed.

Should a new bug be found in a current release, then a crash report will be sent to the Support Division or the problem replicated so that the accumulated bug fixes can be added to the build. Having the latest software version installed therefore improves the overall stability of the program.
