How to download a version of Apex
New or old versions of Apex can be downloaded from the upgrade repository. Apex is not automatically installed after downloading a version using this method. Instead, this method is suitable for scheduled installation or installation from Windows Explorer.
Tip! It is strongly recommended that you perform product updates using the in-product update method instead of installing with Windows File Explorer.
To download an available version of software for later installation, visit the repository and download any self-extracting setup executable:
1. In the web interface, click System > Update.
2. Click the check for updates icon .
Example: Doing this ensures all available versions are shown.
3. Select one by clicking a table row.
4. Click the download icon .
If not previously downloaded, the download begins, and you can view its transfer progress.
 
You successfully downloaded a software upgrade.
