General

When was Enterprise Architect 13 released?

Enterprise Architect 13 was officially released on October 13th, 2016.

Has the underlying database changed?

No.

How does the upgrade path work if you have Enterprise Architect 12?

You’ll simply download and run the installer from our Enterprise Architect release page. The installer will replace your existing Enterprise Architect 12 installation.

Can you install Enterprise Architect 13 alongside an older version?

Yes. You can simply rename your current installation subfolder from "EA" to "EA-Previous" for example, and then install the new version. (Your installation path by default is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems" and the "EA" subfolder resides under that.) You'll then have two subfolders that contain a file named EA.exe, which represent the different versions Enterprise Architect.

To run your previous version, run the EA.exe file from your renamed installation folder.

A few months ago we raised a bug which we were told may be addressed in the next release. How can we find out if that bug is fixed?

Sparx Systems releases detailed Read Me notes with each release. It is likely your issue is mentioned in these. You can access the Read Me notes within the tool. (Start Ribbon | Help | Read Me…)
