In our contemporary world, today’s technology becomes outdated and eventually obsolete. Betamax is replaced by VHS, which is replaced by DVDs, then Blu-Ray, then streaming, etc.
In the PC world, we’ve gone from Windows 98 to XP, 7, Vista, 8, 8.1 and now Windows 10. Along the path of progress, related devices and software must be updated, upgraded, or discarded. Remember the Palm Pilot? And Microsoft introduced XP way back in 2001!
Sign making software is no exception. As the digital infrastructure gets upgraded support for old software, such as LXi 8.5, just goes away. It’s time to move on. Now’s the time to upgrade your old LXi software and keep your business moving forward.
Every day, more and more users are enjoying the convenience and online features of Vinyl Express LXi 12. However, if your version of LXi is a predecessor to version 12 or Cloud, we still want to help by providing free LXi downloads to replace missing or deleted software. While we no longer have access to some of the earliest programs, customers may still download any of the following versions.
Simply download the zip file and extract the folder. You can do this by simply right-clicking on the folder, and select Extract All. After the files have been extracted, open the folder, and run the CD_Start.exe. From here you will be able to install the software.
LXI 8.5: End of Life – No Downloads Available
Due to a loss of manufacturer support for the soft key licenses issued during this era, LXi 8.5 is at an “end of life” phase. Soft key licenses (those that run without the use of a dongle or hard key) are failing due to unsupported operating systems for which they were designed. We have been assisting customers on a case by case basis as they contact us, but we would rather offer solutions before the problem arises. Your old 8.5 software has either stopped working or soon will stop working. Now is the time to upgrade! Customers still using LXi 8.5 should contact us and request a quote for upgrading to LXi 12.
LXi 10 (introduced in 2010) is compatible with Windows XP (3), Vista, and Windows 7. Licensing will require a hardware key (dongle) along with a user id and password.
