“As a non-technical member of the DriveWorks team, I take great pride in being one of the first to download and use the latest version of our software.

We always recommend being on the latest version so that you can take advantage of any security enhancements, bug fixes and new features.”

Downloading the Latest Version of DriveWorks

I started by logging into the MyDriveWorks community to get the latest version of DriveWorks software, in this case DriveWorks 22.

Whilst its tempting to hit the big red Download button immediately, we recommend taking some time to look at the Release Notes and FAQs provided.

The Release Notes summarize the main features of the software release and the FAQs have been designed to help with troubleshooting any questions you might have about the software download process.

I already had DriveWorks 21 installed on my laptop so I took a backup of my DriveWorks 21 Projects, and then went to Programs and Features to uninstall DriveWorks 21.

I then headed back to MyDriveWorks to download the latest release of DriveWorks. DriveWorks Pro is approximately 500MB and took less than 2 minutes to download.

Installing & Licensing the Latest Version of DriveWorks

With the download complete, I then went on to install and license the software.

The DriveWorks Setup Wizard guided and promoted me through the steps I needed to follow.

We generate new license codes for every new release so you can test the new functionality before updating your production/live environment to the latest release.

Your new license codes have been sent to by your reseller.If you haven’t received your DriveWorks 22 license codes yet, please email us at
