Check Your Silhouette Studio Version Now: How and Why!

It's always a good idea to know what version of Silhouette Studio you're running. This is especially important when there's an update to the software, a problem with feature or tool not appearing or a known bug in the software - since there are so many Silhouette Studio versions.

I'm not talking about knowing if you're using Silhouette Studio Designer Edition or Business Edition, I'm talking about the actual version number of the software you're running.

It's easy to find the Silhouette Studio version right from within the software.

Open up Silhouette Studio.

Click the "Silhouette Studio" menu along the top bar.

Then click "About Silhouette Studio."



This will open up a pop up window.

In that pop up window you'll find all the information about the current version of Silhouette Studio you are running.  You can see here mine says "Silhouette studio Business Edition Release 3.8.88ssbe.

  • The first thing you want to notice is the numbers: 3.8.88 is the version of Silhouette Studio
  • 'ss' stands for Silhouette Studio so everyone will have that no matter what version you're running
  • 'be' stands for Business Edition so you may or may not have that or "de" if you're running Designer Edition

Now that know you what version of Silhouette Studio you are running you can check it against the most recent version of the software on the Silhouette America software download page.  This is helpful if you're wondering why you don't have access to the Silhouette Cloud (you're running a version of Silhouette Studio older than V3.7.212) or if you can't get your Silhouette CAMEO 3 to connect to Bluetooth (you're running a version of Silhouette Studio older than V3.8.088 or if your software says it's not compatible with your Silhouette Curio (you need to be running at least V3.4.427)

This will also help you troubleshoot if some of your Designer Edition or Business Edition features mysteriously disappear.  For whatever reason sometimes Designer Edition or Business Edition gets de-activated and you'll just have to re-activate your upgraded software (definitely no reason to re-purchase).
