LoggerPro under Windows Vista

The CD provided contains LoggerPro 3.2 and the relevant application files. For use with Windows Vista you need to upgrade to LoggerPro 3.5.

LoggerPro 3.5 Upgrade "Minimal Updater" is available at no charge from the Vernier website  .

The password is "sodium".

There are two methods to upgrade without losing the application files.


The easiest method is to install LoggerPro 3.5 first before installing the provided CD.

Run the installer.

When you are done, insert the Wiley Physics CD. It will autorun and copy all of the activity files into c:\Physics 1 and c:\Physics 2 directories on your computer. 

The LoggerPro 3.2 installer will then open.  It will give you instructions on making sure that you have no USB devices plugged in, to which you click ok

A setup window opens, and all you need to do is click cancel and the first version of LoggerPro remains on your system. 

If you fail to cancel, the next window is a license agreement. You can click "no" or "back" and then "cancel".

If you click "next", and "yes" throughout the LoggerPro 3.2 installation, it will overwrite LoggerPro 3.5.


You can install the entire Wiley Physics CD first, installing LoggerPro 3.2.  After that, download and install LoggerPro 3.5 per instructions above and let it overwrite Loggerpro 3.2.

Note: On the Vernier Website there is a version for Mac OS X. We have no experience about how it works with our application files. You are on your own here.
