On Windows, download our zip file. For the 64 bit (experimental) version click here. Unzip and double-click “setup.exe”. The installer adds DesignFreeQ to the Windows start menu and puts a shortcut icon on your desktop. Note that you can switch the language in the Layout/Preferences/Language menu. To use all features, this version requires a license code or dongle. If neither is present, saving, printing and export features are disabled. If you purchased a dongle, also run WkRuntime.exe to install the drivers. Here is information on code signing of our Windows products.
On Mac OS X, download the dmg file. Double-clicking the dmg file opens a Finder window. Drop the DesignFreeQ app onto the icon representing the Application folder. Start DesignFreeQ by clicking the icon in Launchpad. Note that you can switch the language in the Layout/Preferences/Language menu. This version also requires a license code or dongle to use all features. On Mac you don’t need to install dongle drivers.
Alternatively, get DesignFreeQ from Apple’s or Microsoft’s app store for a quite reasonable price. Both app store versions do not require a dongle and are certified on their respective platform. These versions are unrestricted but come without IGES translator and simpler DXF-12 im-/export. Please note that the current version of DesignFreeQ is compiled for 32 bit architectures. Apple announced that it will cease to support 32 bit apps in future versions of macOS.
