Getting Started – Existing Users

Before you download a new version of RealCADD, quit your existing RealCADD. I suggest you make a folder for the new version in Applications, named for the RealCADD version you are downloading. Temporarily at least, keep a copy of the original, in a separate folder, named with its version.

Whether you get these messages depends on your security settings and whether the current RealCADD version has been approved by Apple or not. Approval takes time, so the first release of a new version may not yet be approved.
