We would recommend that ALL users of WebPlus X5 download and install this file. Serif recommend that updating should be done within the program, by using the "Check for update from web" option in the Help Menu. This will always get any available update for your version of Serif software (CD/DVD or download) and install it too. The downloads page www.serif.com/downloads.asp has the file also, which is 28.4 MB.

To work out if you need this update choose "About WebPlus" in the help menu and if the version number is then you need this update. Helpfully the software checks for updates the first time it runs, so for those yet to install the software, the latest update will be found on first use if needed.
