Free Updates to the Current Version: We offer free updates to your existing program periodically throughout the year. For any major version, there are often many free updates. Our free updates are delivered over the Internet to your computer in two pieces. You can check for these free updates at any time. Simply open your birding program and click Help and then click Check for Updates. If an update is available, download it, close the program and then install the free update. Now do this again. The second update is usually the larger of the two. If you have a very old version like 1, 2 or 3, free updates are no longer available. CLICK HERE to get great deals on the newest software.
