    AllyCAD 2014 - 64 Bit only
    This is just to let all our clients know that AllyCAD 2014 will only run on 64 Bit machines and will be compatible with Windows Vista and onwards. Due to the fact that Microsoft Windows is dropping Windows XP, we will need to follow suit.

    AllyCAD 3.6 no longer supported
    It has been 6 years after all!
    Unfortunately the time has come that AllyCAD 3.6 can no longer be supported by Knowledge Base. Most other software vendors retire software after just 1-3 years and stop supporting it. We have supported this version for nearly 7 years! The software will still obviously work but we will not assist with support calls and no more improvements or bug fixes will be issued for these versions.

    If you are still using these old versions, now is the time to upgrade to the latest 2013/14 version. Contact to organise your upgrade.
