Pricing Change and upcoming versions

After seven years, we are changing the pricing structure of NSolVx.  Effective 1 July 2019, each new user must purchase a separate license for the software.  Existing users are not affected.

The original idea for the “dual installation” feature was to allow a single user to install on both a desktop and a laptop.  In practice, however, most users simply treat it as a "two-for-one” deal, and since dual-compter setups are no longer common, I decided to end this practice.

I am also working on a full update to the program.  The new version “NSolV8” will include support for AC Bus Systems (such as Sunny Island Systems) as well as a number of other improvements and fixes.  When this is released, existing users will be be required to move to individual licenses rather than the existing “two per serial number."  The price for the software upgrade has not yet been determined, but will be based on the purchase date of the original NSolVx software.

Latest Version

What is the latest version of NSol?

The latest version is 5.5.6149.  You can find this information in the “Info” button at the far right of the toolbar.  If you do not have the latest version, you can just download the full version from the website and run the installation program.  This will not write over your database, logo or address files – it will simply update the exe files.

The changes have all been relatively minor bug fixes – there have been no major upgrades to the program.

First Post

It is exciting to finally get the new version of NSol! out into the wild.  I want to thank all of the dedicated NSol! users who have continually pestered me to keep working on the software.  It has been a lot of fun.  I think the workflow has been significantly improved, and there are more options and better databases, but there are still many things on the "to do" list, so keep sending me ideas.
