Downloads

Unless specified, all HiFi product updates are cumulative, meaning that you only need to install the latest update “over the top” of your existing version.  To install, simply click your update below and “open” the file when it has finished downloading.  Follow the prompts and/or manually extract the contents to a temporary directory, then run the included .exe file.

Each update has an included “revisions.rtf” or “revisions.txt” file, located in the installation path after update, indicating the changes, fixes and enhancements specific to that version.

Open Beta updates are optional.  Version/Build numbers are indicated in your application main screen and can be compared with the Version/Build numbers shown in the downloads page. By default, all Active Sky applications automatically notify you when a new official build is available, unless you’ve disabled this message in settings.

New ASP3D OPEN BETA signups ended on October 10, 2020.  Those who have previously created ASP3D accounts with their ASP4 license key will continue to be eligible to participate in the ASP3D Beta and to keep that account after release.

Bug reports, suggestions, questions and all other ASP3D related discussion should occur in our ASP3D Beta Forum.

This OPEN BETA software is provided at your own risk, is a work-in-progress, and WILL contain bugs/issues.  Many of them, most likely.  This IS NOT POLISHED RELEASED SOFTWARE.  Please consider this before joining the BETA.
