Directory Opus + Directory Opus Light + Video Guide

Directory Opus is now available as a free update for all Directory Opus 10 users.

Evaluation period reset:

  • If you have been test-driving Directory Opus 10.0 or 10.1 and your 60-day evaluation has run out, you can request a new 60-day evaluation for Directory Opus 10.2 to see what's new.
  • If you're currently using an Opus 10.0 or 10.1 evaluation certificate then you'll need a new 10.2 evaluation certificate as the old eval cert won't work with the new version (it will say the old cert has expired). You'll get a full 60-day period from the new cert.
  • If you've purchased Opus 10 already then you don't need to do anything. Your existing certificate will continue to work with all 10.x versions and never expires.
  • You can download the update via the GPSoftware website, or use Check For Program Updates in the program's Help menu.
  • If you use the German (Deutsch) version of Opus, go to Haage & Partner's downloads page for the program update, Help file and additional resources translated into German. (For all other languages, use GPSoftware's site.)
The update includes everything from the 10.1.0.x beta versions: The update also includes the following new change:
  • Fixed issue where adding a file from a plugin archive (e.g. 7z) to a ZIP file could in some cases mean that files then extracted from that ZIP file would have their sizes set to 4 GB.
Additionally, 10.2 represents the official release of Directory Opus Light.
