WaveRider for Windows Download Page

The current version is 2.1, released 9/12/2006

The WaveRider for Windows Program is made up of just one file.  All you have to do is download it to your hard drive, and run it!

If you have an older version of the program, follow the instructions below and save the new program in the same place (on top of) the old one.

Step by Step Instructions:

   1.Click on the link below
   2.Depending on what browser and what version of windows you have, a window will pop up asking you where you want to save this file.  You can save it in any folder you like, but
     typically, you will want to save it in:
           c:\Program Files\svt\WaveRiderW
   3.You will need to create this folder first, using the pop-up window's new folder feature.
   4.Once the file is downloaded and saved, you can run it by selecting it, either through "My Computer", or Windows Explorer.
   5.If you wish, you can create a shortcut by right clicking on the program (in Windows Explorer or through "My Computer"), and selecting "Create Shortcut".  Once the shortcut is
     made, drag the shortcut to the Windows Desktop.

The WaveRider for Windows is purchased for each WaveRider box.   The software itself can be loaded on as many computers as you like, and is not keyed to a specific WaveRider Box.

To purchase, please contact Stray Voltage Testing.    When you do purchase the program, you will be given a key.   To use it, download and run the WaveRider for Windows software, connect the WaveRider Box to your PC, then click on the Purchase/Register button.   You can enter the key, and it will be sent to the WaveRider Box.   This only has to be done once, then it will work with the software running on any PC.

Please check this page often, as updates will be posted here from time to time.  Bug fixes and minor feature enhancements will be available at no additional charge to registered users.
(Stray Voltage Testing reserves the right to limit free upgrades).
