This article applies to Studio Second Edition. See what’s new in Presenter ’09!
If you’re not running Vista or PowerPoint 2007, you don’t need to worry about upgrading.
The following Vista-compatible products are now available to trial, existing, and new customers:
- Articulate Presenter 5.3
- Articulate Quizmaker 2.2
- Articulate Engage 1.2
Additionally, Presenter 5.3 and Engage 1.2 — for publishing your interactions directly to Presenter/PowerPoint — are PowerPoint 2007 compatible.
So, how do you upgrade? Read on.
Trial Customers – How to Upgrade
If you are a new trial customer, proceed to the free trial form and you will be directed to the new builds.
If you downloaded your free 15-day trial prior to this morning — before approximately 9:15 AM U.S. Eastern Time — and want to use your trial products with Vista and/or PowerPoint 2007 for the duration of your trial period, you can uninstall your existing trials and visit the trial download page to get the new builds.
Existing Customers – How to Upgrade
If you’re an existing customer and would like to upgrade to the Vista/PowerPoint 2007 compatible version of our products, please refer to your original activation email and follow the link(s) to download the software. You’ll first want to uninstall your current products. If you need help, please submit a case and we’ll help you out.
New Customers – How to Upgrade
If you’ve been using our trial versions and/or have not yet purchased our software, don’t worry — you’ll have the opportunity to tell us what operating system and version of PowerPoint you’re using when you download your new software (you’ll get a download link in your activation email after you purchase):
PowerPoint 2007 Compatibility
Articulate Presenter 5.3 is compatible with PowerPoint 2007. However, since Presenter 5 was developed well before the release of PowerPoint 2007, it is not always aware of new features added to PowerPoint 2007. As such, some new features unique to PowerPoint 2007 may not translate exactly to Presenter 5.3. Expect future major releases of Articulate Presenter to take advantage of PowerPoint 2007’s new features.
Enjoy this new release! And again, you only need to upgrade if you’re running Vista and/or PowerPoint 2007.
