How to Install Maintenance Updates
Periodically we will make a maintenance update available with bug fixes
These maintenance updates are a replacement of the Cadrail9.exe program file
only, not a complete installation. You must
have previously installed the full version of Cadrail on the system.
Then you can download the update file and install it on your computer.
To Install a Maintenance Update:
- After downloading the update file to your system (see below),
find the file you downloaded on your system (use Windows Explorer or
other means). It is in the folder name you specified when you
downloaded. The file name is normally CRXXX.EXE where XXX is the
version number like 901. If you changed the file name when you
downloaded use that name.
- Once you have located the file, double-click the file name to
begin installation. The WinZip Self Extractor dialog will appear on
the screen. Make sure the path shown for the
unzip to folder is the path to your Cadrail application folder on
your computer hard drive. The default folder name is provided
in the dialog, normally C:\Program Files\Sandia
Software\Cadrail 9.5\ on Windows XP systems. If your
system is different you need to provide the correct folder path.
Just click the BROWSE button and specify the path to the folder you
downloaded the upgrade file into.
- After the correct path is specified, click the UNZIP button to
extract the file and place it in your Cadrail folder. Answer YES
when asked to confirm replacement of the existing Cadrail9.exe
program file. If you are not asked to confirm, you did not specify
the correct path to the Cadrail application (do not check overwrite
files without prompting on the WinZip dialog).
- After the file is replaced, start Cadrail and verify the version
by going to the menu item Help - About in the Cadrail application.
Download the Files:
- After clicking a download link on a page on our web site, you will be asked
what to do with the file. Click the SAVE
button to save the file
onto your hard drive.
- Each version of Windows behaves slightly differently.
A. If asked what to do with the file select SAVE. Then go to
your downloads window, tell the system the file is safe, and
then run the file.
B. If the Save As dialog appears, select a folder on your
hard drive. Note the folder and file name so you can
later locate the file and run it. It is
best to use an empty
folder on your system.
