I have made a short tutorial walking through the process of installing on a Windows 7 machine.

This version of 4D is also certified to run on Windows 8. It is not certified to run on Windows 10 but I’ve heard from developers using it on Win10 that it’s OK. 4D v15 will not run on Windows XP.

The tutorial will give you all the information required to download and install the program.

Uninstall old versions of 4D

Installing a new version of 4D does not ‘update’ or remove any old versions you have installed. Unless you have some reason to keep the old versions it’s a good idea to remove them. You don’t have to but it’s easy to get confused about which one you should be using with multiple copies on your disk.

How to uninstall 4D on Windows

Click on the Start button and choose Control Panel. Now choose Uninstall a program from the Programs Category. A window will open with a list of all programs installed on your computer. Near the top of this list you will see the versions of 4D installed. Click on one of them then click the Uninstall link. Confirm you want to remove it and wait.

Repeat this process for all the older versions of 4D. Don’t worry if you accidentally uninstall the current version – you can just run the installer again.
