One thought about “Now Available – Unlimited connections with Designer premium editions!
  • Hi,
    Back in March / April 2014 there was a big “PADs VX” release.

    From what I can tell the dates on the PADs distribution files are all 2013.

    I look at my PADs Help windows and I see PADs 9.5 from 2012.

    Is there any way to tell what version I have and if it is up to date to some later date?
