Finding and Installing Previous Versions of Silhouette Studio

Did you know that it's possible to revert back to older versions of Silhouette Studio? This may be necessary for any number of reasons.  One of the big reasons Silhouette users need to go back to an older version of Silhouette Studio is to restore their library. Sometimes when you upgrade to a new versions of Silhouette Studio, your whole library doesn't transfer over.  Most times, reverting back to an older version of Silhouette Studio will bring back the complete library.

Not only does Silhouette America offer the current version of the Silhouette Studio for download, they also older versions - and a lot of them.  First you should find out what version of Silhouette Studio you are running.

Then you'll want to go to Silhouette America's website and click on the Update Software button.  There you'll find the current versions, but also the Beta and Legacy versions of Studio. The Legacy versions are previous versions.

You can click on any one of them to download and install on your computer.

You should be aware of a few things if you do this. First of all, Silhouette Studio has gone through many updates, some of the more major than others....some of them more buggy than others.

Silhouette Studio Version 3.6.057 is the most recent version of the software that does not use the Cloud. So if you aren't a fan of the Cloud or can't use it for whatever reason, you'll want to make sure you are using a version prior to 3.6.057.

Also, until late last month all available versions of the software could access the Silhouette Online Store, but recently (and quietly) that ability has been changed.  Those using Silhouette Studio 2.9.67 quickly noticed they were no longer able to access the online store through their software and those purchased from the website can not be synced into the Silhouette Studio library.  That version of the Studio was released with a significant security update relating to payment. The release notes state the update "remove(d) support for non-secure SSL protocol" and I'm guessing that has something to do with lack of support now for the online store.
