Installing Upgrades

  1. Click the button above to start downloading.

  2. Once the download is complete open the Downloads folder on your Mac.

  3. If you used Safari to download then you will see a Vision installer file suffixed with DMG in your Downloads folder. Drag the DMG file you have just downloaded onto your Desktop (or somewhere else if you prefer).

    If you used Chrome to download then you may see a ZIP file for Vision in your Downloads folder. Double click on the Zip file you have just downloaded. Your Mac will then 'expand' the zip file and after it has finished the new Vision installer DMG will also be in your Download folder. Drag the new Vision DMG from your Downloads folder onto your Desktop (or somewhere else if you prefer). 

  4. Double click the DMG installer file you just moved to the Desktop (or somewhere else if you did that) to start the installer.

    When it opens up you should follow the suggestion and drag from the left Vision picture onto the right Applications picture.    

    However should you wish to retain use of the previous version (we always do!) we suggest you drag to install v1.014 to a different folder or even to your Desktop for easy access.

  5. When the installer has finished click on the DMG file and 'Eject' it. 

  6. Start Vision from your Applications folder as normal (if any books have been distributed with this upgrade Vision may take a little longer than usual the first time it starts while it copies over and organises any updated books).
