Patch update for SW/SWP 3.0 graphics filters

Version: 3.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

SWP/SW uses graphics filters from third party vendors. Updates to those filters have recently been received and a patch update has been created to allow you to install the new filters. This patch can be used for both SWP and SW 3.0. It will work with either Build 1069 or Build 1079, but the update to Build 1079 is recommended. The updated filters seem to improve performance when using Encapsulated PostScript files, add support for Corel Draw 8 files, and improve performance for some .gif and .jpg files.

Follow these instructions to download the patch update for the graphics filters.

  1. Download the 30filtup.exe update file (1,964,956 bytes).

  2. Save the file in your SWP or SW program directory (usually c:\swp30 or c:\sw30).

  3. Start the patch update program. The program will ask you for the SWP/SW directory name.

  4. Choose OK.

  5. Follow the screen prompts as they appear.

  6. After the patch has been installed you can remove 30filtup.exe from your hard disk.

The patch update file 30filtup.exe is just under 2 MB in size. The total size of the new uncompressed graphics filters is just over 6 MB. The list below shows the files that are updated, the old and new file version numbers, and file sizes.

You can see the details of the files on your system:

  1. Use the Explorer to highlight a file.

  2. Select the file Properties.

  3. Open the General tabl to see the file size.

  4. Open the Version tab to see the version.
