Upgrade SmartEdit to the Latest Version

The current version of SmartEdit is 3.421. If you are running an earlier version, you may wish to upgrade to the most recent version. To decide whether or not you should upgrade, check out the details of the most recent release on the Change Log page.

Does your current license cover the new version?

All licensed users of version 2 or version 3 of SmartEdit are entitled to upgrade to any version 3 release at no charge. A fee may apply for major upgrades in the future (version 4, version 5, etc.).

Follow the steps below:

  1. Close SmartEdit if it is open on your PC.
  2. Download the most recent trial version from the download page.
  3. Run the installation program. The installation will detect where you previously installed SmartEdit, and will proceed to update that version of the software.
  4. Open SmartEdit.
  5. The newer version will detect any license key that is already installed.
  6. That's all there is to it.
