MAGic requires that you restart your computer during the installation process. To avoid problems, always download the MAGic release to your computer first instead of running the executable from the Windows Download dialog box. The following briefly describes how to download and install a MAGic release.
- Select the appropriate MAGic download link that appears on this page.
- When the dialog box opens, choose Save and select a location where you can easily find the downloaded executable file.
- Run the executable and follow the talking installer.
If you want to try a free, fully-functional demonstration version of MAGic, select any link below in the Download Links section to install and use MAGic in 40-minute demo mode. The software will run in this mode until you are ready to purchase a product license and upgrade to the released version. There are several advantages to having one release. For example:
- It eliminates the need to have a separate demo download file or demo CD
- Unlike previous demo software, you do not have to worry about the software expiring at a future date
- Finally, you can take advantage of the Check for Updates feature in the Help menu to conveniently update demo software installed from a CD picked up at a show or downloaded months ago from Freedom Scientific
For more information about demo products, see Freedom Scientific Demo Software.
