Postby Benj » Thu Jan 18, 2018 6:22 pm

Here is a list of cumulative updated files available since the release 7.3.

Simply extract the zip archive into your Flowcode 7 folder for the new files to be applied. Remember to restart Flowcode if you have it running to apply the changes.

Hi Ben,

Should there be a file associated with this post?

Hi Matt,
The latest file is always the file on the very first post.
If you look at the file name it will have the date it was last updated.
Currently, at the time of writing, the file is named:

Code: Select all

https://www.matrixtsl.com/temp/FC7_Latest_Files_01-10-18.zip

It just saves having multiple files that are out of date and taking up valuable server space.

I apologise if this is posted in the wrong section.
is it possible to still download the full FlowCode V7.3? I would like to run as a trial for problem solving.

Many thanks!
