How to upgrade?

You can download the software electronically from our support page.
Each software needs its own USB dongle to work. All BookDrives shipped from 2012 come included with USB dongles.

For existing owners who do not have the USB dongles, you can contact to buy from the seller from which you've purchased your system or purchase directly from us here.

FAQs

  • Can I upgrade only one program?

    Yes. You can upgrade only either BookDrive Capture software or BookDrive Editor Pro software or both. It's your choice. Each software needs its own USB dongle to run. You can run each program on a different computer. Or you can install the software on as many PCs as you want. But it will only run only on the PC that has the USB dongle plugged in.

  • How will future upgrades be handled using the dongle and cost?

    If you upgrade Capture software, the dongle you receive will be able to unlock current and future versions of BookDrive Capture v5 and v6.

    Likewise with Editor, the dongle you receive will be able to unlock current and future versions of Editor Pro v5 and v6.

  • Will you continue to support upgrades for old units?

    Yes. Customers who bought any BookDrive back from 2006 still can upgrade to the most current version.

  • If we are happy with the way our system runs....no need to upgrade to dongle?

    No need to upgrade if you are happy with the current functionalities of the software and don't need the new features added in 2013 or 2012.

    If the improvements in the most current software are not compelling enough for you, you may wait out and decide to upgrade at later time when newer versions are more compelling to you.

    But if you will probably upgrade anyway, why wait? The cost is not going to be lower. You can upgrade now and enjoy these benefits today!
