    Default CarveWright Software CD

    I switched computers, and want to move the CW software to my new computer. I cannot find my CD. I'm using V 1.188, Build 59. Can I download this directly from CW, or do I need to get a new CD?

    Yes download the software from the website. What was on the CD is probably outdated.

    You should not use the CD. You should go here and download and use the latest version.

    How do I move the patterns I have purchased and the patterns I created over to the new computer. Also, what folders should I put them in?

    If you have a home network set up, use it to move/copy them. If not a thumb drive or cd works very well. Set up a CarveWright folder in you documents area to place them in. Do not try to put them directly into any of the installed CarveWright folders. Any purchased patterns you sill need to update your license file for the new computer.

    DOWNLOADING THE LATEST VERSION OF DESIGNER SOFTWARE
    INSTALLATION OF LATEST VERSION

    1. If you have an old disk of the Project Designer Software, throw it in the trash
    2. If you installed software from an old disk or if you were running version 1.182 or older, go into your control panel and remove the CarveWright installation
    3. Download the correct version of Project Designer:

    Basic Designer v1.188 (free version) - http://www.carvewright.com/updates/
    Project Designer 3 v3.xxx (paid upgrade) - http://www.carvewright.com/update3/

    1. Ignore any security warnings. Since Microsoft & other security software applications have never heard of CarveWright, you may get security warnings that we are not safe; select to Allow or Continue anyway.
    2. You will be given the option to RUN or SAVE (OPEN IN FOLDER)
      1. Windows Vista, 7, 8, or 10 operating systems:
        Do Not select Run & go to step 6
      2. Windows XP operating systems:
        Click Run & go to step 9
      3. Mac operating systems (currently unavailable for Catalina):
        Follow the Mac Installation Instructions http://www.carvewright.com/assets/se...tart_Guide.pdf

    Under the Designer Software Quick Start Guide

    1. Save the file into your Downloads folder or somewhere that you can find it; or click Open in Folder
    2. Find the Application file that you just downloaded or opened in a folder that is named “Designer_1_18(#)” (last number will change with each update)
    3. Right-Click on it and select "Run As Administrator" from the menu to install
    4. Follow the installation wizard *For Windows 10 when prompted for install location change from the default of C:\ProgramFiles (x86)\ to C:\ProgramData\CarveWright\ (if running BASIC) or C:\ProgramData\CarveWright3\ (if running PRO).
    5. Unselect and/or disregard the “Read Me” file instructions


    REGISTRATION OF PROJECT DESIGNER


    1. After installed, you will need to register the software to your existing Customer Account
    2. Find the Project Designer Icon on your Desktop
      1. Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10 operating systems:
        Right-click on the icon and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR
      2. Windows XP operating systems:
        Double-click to open
      3. MAC - drag icon into Applications Folder. Reinstall x11 (https://www.xquartz.org/) & turn off feature called APP NAP under GET INFO.

    3. Register ONLINE and select the option that says "I Already Have A CarveWright Customer Account" (If you are an educator and want students to log in with different usernames & passwords, please click USE EDUCATOR LICENSES.
    4. You will need to know your Customer Account username & password to register
    5. Your Customer Account password can be reset, if you cannot remember it. You must know your username & email address. Call LHR, if you do not know it. DO NOT try to create a New Customer Account as your machine serial number is already registered to YOU and that is where any other licenses that you have are registered

    RE-DOWNLOADING LICENSED PATTERNS & PROJECTS

    1. Log into your Customer Account at www.carvewright.com under Quick Links (bottom of page)
    2. Next to each pattern, collection and project is a download link

    4. Remember projects are saved to your computer and never uploaded into your Pattern Library


    NOTE: STORE ACCOUNT (where you make online purchases) & CUSTOMER ACCOUNT (where you register computers, machine & licenses) are two separate pieces of software and may have different usernames & passwords.
    NOTE: Windows Vista, 7, 8, & 10 users may want to right-click on your Project Designer Software icon > go to PROPERTIES > then ADVANCED PROPERTIES (may be named something similar) and find the option to ALWAYS RUN THIS APPLICATION AS ADMINISTRATOR.
