Updates : Mac

This page provides downloadable updates for the Mac versions of X/Winteracter up to and including version 9.30. Updates for Microsoft Windows and Linux are provided on separate pages.

Note: As of Winteracter 10.0, the old update mechanism has been retired, following the introduction of electronic software delivery. Users of version 10.0 onwards should download and install the current version from the page specified in their licence email. That download will always be based on the most recently released update.

Download Instructions

  • To download an update in Safari on the Mac, Ctrl-click on the appropriate link and select "Save Linked File to the Desktop".
  • Each update is provided in the form of a .wup (Winteracter Update) data file. This should be installed by running wupdate (the Winteracter Update Installer) which is located in the Winteracter bin directory. Run wupdate from a Terminal window. The .wup filename can be specified as an argument on the program command line. Otherwise, wupdate will prompt for the location of the .wup file via a file selector.
  • The Winteracter Update Installer will prompt for your CD id and key code. These are printed on your X/Winteracter CD and also on the back of the CD case. When the id and keycode have been entered, the update files will be installed automatically to the directory identified by the WINTER environment variable.
  • You must own a licence for the relevant target platform to be able to install these updates. Similarly you must own a licence for the corresponding version number. Your keycode will not allow installation otherwise. (e.g. if v7.0 is currently installed you will only be able to install the corresponding 7.0 update.)
  • Updates made available here are complete for a given major release. So for example, 8.0k is installable over v8.0 without needing to install the intermediate 8.0a-j updates. To determine the currently installed revision select the "Help|Licence Information" menu option in WiDE.
  • If multiple licences are installed together, then update installation must be repeated for each licence. The file for a given update only needs to be downloaded once, but the update installer should be run once for each licence held.
