Advantages of Upgrading

Computer software is constantly replaced by newer versions –  old versions eventually become redundant, they are no longer compatible with other software or hardware, the manufacturers no longer provide support or updates. Updating / upgrading will take care of security issues and you will be able to enjoy the latest technology.

Work with just one single interface instead of 2 or even 3

Opus has more books, journals, materia medicae etc than what is available in older versions.

A lost or damaged dongle for an older Radar version cannot be or replaced (only connectors for Radar 10.5 or Opus) due to obsolete technology.

*** Attention all Radar 10 users ***

  • Windows 10 is coming out now with a so-called Anniversary update (Build 1607).
  • Radar 10.5 (and also older versions) will then stop functioning properly.
  • Only when restoring back to the previous Windows 10 version (Build 1511) will Radar 10.5 work again.
  • If you do accept the update, then you can uninstall it again. You can email Luke for a PDF on how to do this.
  • Archibel can no longer guarantee continued support for Radar 10.5 as development of this program has ceased.
  • If you want to carry on using Radar 10.5 then the best advice is to NEVER let Windows update itself…
  • Sorry this is the case, but Archibel are a small company and do not have the funds to continue support for old software on new operating systems (It is an unfortunate trend these days for Windows and Apple to try and out-do each other in a bid for bigger profits by making software that comes with built-in obsolescence…)
  • If you wish to continue using the newest versions of Windows, this will eventually require an upgrade to RadarOpus. This will come with ALL of your existing titles plus the volumes that come in the Opus package you choose- Essentials, Advanced or Optimum.
  • We’ll be in touch again soon with pricing as we want you to get the best deal possible on your upgrade.

Compatible with recent Operating Systems

The development of Radar was stopped in July 2010 (last version 10.5.003), for EH in December 2009 (version 2.5) and for WinCHIP November 2011 (3.1.04). Each software guaranteed compatibility with Windows OS Windows 7 (released October 2009).
As our development has stopped, compatibility with more recent OS cannot be guaranteed. When Windows 8 was released in October 2012, it appeared that Radar was still running; the same happened when Windows 8.1 was released. It is more and more unlikely that our old software will remain compatible with newer OS.
