  • Windows (32-Bit): SQLManagementStudio_x86_ENU.exe
  • Windows (64-Bit): SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe

Important notes:

  • Please note the updated system requirements for installing WERMA-WIN.
  • We recommend backing up your WIN database before running the update.
  • Please install or update the software on the PC where the database is installed (the Server PC) first and then on all other PCs.
  • If you are running WIN on multiple PCs, you must upgrade all your PCs to the same software version to maintain correct Operation (same version as on the Server PC).
  • During the update of an existing WIN installation the database will be automatically updated. The database can then no longer be used with an older WERMA-WIN version.
  • Before installation, please note the topics that you will find under the heading “Announcement WERMA-WIN 5.0 SP1”
