Price List


This page contains links to the latest versions of our products. Each file contains either a program executable (e.g. TOOLBOX.EXE) or help file so that you can choose which files to update. We recommend, however, that you always maintain compatible versions.

To download a new version select the file from the list and select the 'Save to disk' option. When the download is complete unzip the file and copy it to the Star-TEC installation directory, normally 'C:\Star-TEC\' 

From version 11.1 you will need to use your product password to unlock the application. If in doubt please contact Star-TEC or your authorised reseller for assistance.
