  2. Then go to:

On Windows, C:\Users\[Your User Home]\My Documents\WaveMetrics\Igor Pro 7 User Files\Igor Procedures

On Mac, Applications\Igor Pro 7 Folder\Igor Procedures

and delete any iolite related files there. There should be three shortcut files to delete.

  1. Download the iolite_v3.6.zip file from here and install this version following these instructions.
  2. Register this version using your license key (the one you deregistered in step 1).

If you are currently using iolite_v3.5, you can use the Iolite menu (iolite > About iolite > Check for Updates)  to upgrade to this version.


If you tried to upgrade to this version using the ‘Check for Updates’ menu option but this did not work, it is recommended that you install the iolite_v3.6.zip file following the steps described above.
