Cadfil Installation Files

For new systems always use the highest version.

These install files are general so have no winding machine configuration or only sample configuration files(.SM) files. SM files are specific to each winding machine. Copy these from your previous version. If in doubt please ask and we will be happy to assist you!

This filament winding software is free to download but will only function with a fully authorised and configured Datakey. Your current Datakey licence may not permit use of the latest version if the normal support period has finished. Each install file is complete and does not rely on any previous installation and does not affect any existing installation.

If the Datakey drivers installation program is required (for older installations only) please see Datakey Drivers below. Cadfil installation files from version 7.38 onwards include the drivers in the install program.

The latest Cadfil is built on Windows 10 but will run on any 32 or 64 bit window version AFTER windows XP. Windows XP is not supported with the latest versions. The latest datakey driver (dk3wn3264_3_6_0_64.exe) supports all version of windows, please see the drivers link above. Old versions of Cadfil should run OK on windows 10 but usually the latest datakey driver must be installed after the Cadfil install. Driver support for Windows 7 is included from 7.51 onwards, windows 10 support us included from Cadfil 8.10 onwards. For support for older versions please see Datakey Drivers information below.

As as April 2013 we have removed many old and unsupported versions from the downloads page. If you need one of these older versions then please send an email (see the contacts page) and give the name of your company, the serial number from your datakey and a return email address and we will be happy to assist you! Please note that any version marked "Beta" will have some new feature or change in response to a specific customer need and that this will not have been subjected to the normal level of testing, and such changes may yet to be documented in the help files.

* Note: The 8.5x Beta is a pre-release of the new Cadfil 9 and will need a licence update to enable it. This version is not a general release.

** Note: Version 9.00 is available free of charge to all users who purchased Cadfil or a Cadfil maintenance upgrade after 06 December 2014 but a new licence file will be required. New systems sales are always licensed to enable use the latest Cadfil version but licences are backwardly compatible with older versions.
