me too. Maybe we have to uinstall 8.1.2 and then install 9. But what will happen with the libraries then?

@RJ-Elektronikk And one more thing - you do not need to uninstall 8.1.2 to install v9.0. you can have both versions installed on your computer in the same time.

@RJ-Elektronikk This is a rear situation/bug and in this case the fastest way to overcome it is to obtain the new version directly from download page: Regarding what will happen to libraries - for major release update like the current one your current libraries will stay in v8.1 folder, if you did not changed default place, then the path should be: C:\Users\Public\Documents\DesignSpark PCB 8.1\Library Then, you can map your 8.1 libraries to be used in new release inside of software in "library Manager" > tab: Folders

Currently, I cannot upgrade my PCB software from 8.1.2 to the latest release 9.0.
I get an error message: "Unable to retrieve information about available updates"
Hope this is fixed in the near future.
