Stand Alone Installation
Uninstalling or moving our software
If you wish to uninstall or move the IESVE software once keys have been activated please contact us. You will need to run IES-Clean and generate an Uninstall PIN. This is required for us to re-issue keys.
Running multiple versions
Multiple versions of our major releases (e.g. VE 2016, 2017 & 2018) can be installed alongside each other. Therefore you do not need to uninstall previous versions if you so wish. However, project files will be automatically upgraded if opened in a newer version.
