I followed Brads instructions about downloading it straight from the site and making sure nothing is running in the background. Had to try it a couple of times but got it to work. Brad, what I was trying to say was is there a way to make sure the download was actually completed. I assume it was successful because when I open the program it doesn't tell me there is an update available anymore. I was just wondering if it literally is supposed to say Beersmith 2.2 somewhere on the sceen when I go to use Beersmith ? Sorry for the confusion.
