Published:  08/03/2017
When you are downloading your software, are you having trouble identifying which options to select from the download packager list?


What is the Download Packager?

The purpose of the Download Packager is to provide you with a list of products you own, as detailed on your Licence Statement, so you can choose which applications to install when upgrading or downloading your software. The Download Packager is available on the My Software page, after logging into the community.

Click on Launch our Download Packager button to view your software options which are available in a checklist, to create your download package..
