Upgrading your Calcium Demo Installation
Horizontal Line
Install the Demo

First, if you haven't already installed the demo version of Calcium 4.0 you need to do so. Please go to our download page for instructions.

Upgrading to the licensed version

Once the demo is installed, you need to install a few more files to convert the installation to the version you purchased. You can use a simple CGI script for this, or you can just copy the files yourself.

Upgrade Script

To use the script, download the "" file and put it in the same directory as your main Calcium script (that's typically 'cgi-bin'). Then browse to the appropriate URL; you'll be asked for your registration name and password, and the script will download and install the upgrade files.

Download the upgrade script
(< ~10K bytes;  Right click the link, and pick "Save Link As..." or "Save Target As...")

Manual Upgrade

Instead of using the script, you can download the files and install them yourself. To get the files, follow this link; you'll need your registration name and password:

Get upgrade package

After you enter your information, your browser will download a package of files. Just unpackage that into the "upgrades" directory of your Calcium 4.0 installation. Note that files should automatically be unpackaged into the "Calendar" and "Operation" sub-directories of "upgrades". (If your site is remotely hosted, you'll likely need to unpackage it on your desktop machine, and copy the files up to the site.)

Thanks again for using Calcium! As always, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.
