Applies to Versions: Kurzweil 1000 (Win) ; Kurzweil 3000 (Win/Mac) - All currently supported versions

Information:

It is not possible to have two different Editions, versions or installations of Kurzweil 3000 for Windows on the same computer. It is also possible to have Kurzweil 1000 and Kurzweil 3000 on the same computer in most cases, if certain guidelines are followed.

For Kurzweil 3000 Mac, it is possible as long as each instance of the Kurzweil 3000 app is in different folder locations.

 

FAQ:

I have Kurzweil 3000 Version 13 for Windows already installed. Can I also install Version 14 and have access to both versions on the same Windows computer? What about different editions, e.g. Standalone and Web License?

No, you cannot. You can only have one version of Kurzweil 3000 (K3000) installed at a time on a Windows computer.

For Windows, this applies to all versions of the product, even if you have two different editions, for example Standalone and Web License. This means you cannot have K3000 v14 Web License and K3000 v14 Standalone installed on the same Windows computer.

 

I have Kurzweil 3000 Version 5 for Macintosh already installed. Can I also install Version 14 and have access to both versions on the same computer? What about different editions, e.g. Standalone and Web License?

Due to the self-contained nature of a Macintosh apps (.app files), it's possible to have multiple versions and/or editions of the Kurzweil 3000 app existing on your computer, as long as the Kurzweil 3000.app file name is renamed (e.g. to Kurzweil 3000 v14 Web License.app) or it exists in a separate folder. However, so as to avoid confusion and ensure application stability, we recommend only having the latest and most updated version of the Kurzweil 3000 app on your computer only.

 

I have Kurzweil 1000 Version 14 and Kurzweil 3000 Version 15, can I install both of them on the same computer?

Yes, as long as you install Kurzweil 1000 first, and then update it, this configuration should function. Please note that if you are working with older versions of the product, please contact us for the install order/compatibility. There is some more information about this here.
