You can now order directly from this page. Ordering is secure, because it is all done through the PayPal "Buy Now" buttons below. You can use your credit card and don't even need to have a PayPal account. I don't personally process the credit card information; PayPal takes care of that.
Note: Be sure to have already downloaded and tested the demo version(s) above. The bundle option is recommended, as most users find WXSIMATE to save a lot of time and effort in gathering data for WXSIM itself. What you are actually paying for is my time and effort setting up the data files for your specific site. If you need other ordering options, such as multiple sites or site licensing, go to the Ordering Information page.
Please also send an email advising me of your order, both as back-up notification and (optionally) to provide site information to help me get started on your job. In any case, I will be contacting you shortly (usually within a day or two).

The shareware and upgrade downloads for WXSIM and WXSIMATE are in an easy- to-use form. Years ago, I provided these packages as ZIP files, which had to be extracted into the appropriate directory - with overwrites in the case of upgrades. Now, I'm using Inno Setup (by jrsoftware) to provide them as simple setup programs. There's a 'Wizard' to guide you through the (very simple) process. While most users handled the old system just fine, it was a bit awkward for others. This new system should be easy for everybody!
The installation is still very clean, with all program files for both WXSIM and WXSIMATE placed in a single directory (default name c:\wxsim), so uninstallation (as if you'd want to do that!!!) is very simple and total. Another new feature is that distinctive (I hope you like my artwork!) icons are now provided and installed onto your Desktop and into the Program Files directory, so that you don't have to set up the shortcuts manually (though of course they can easily be removed if you like). The icon for WXSIM 12 can be distinguished from the pre-Version 12 WXSIM icon in that it is named WXSIM12, instead of just WXSIM, WXSIM10, or WXSIM 11 (all of which it overwrites anyway).
If you're new to WXSIM, you'll want the full 'shareware' package, which is full-featured, but with Atlanta and a few other sample sites, instead of your own. The name of this file is wxsimdem.exe and it's about 1.62 MB, and installation takes only 8 MB of disk space. If you're already a registered WXSIM user, you need the upgrade (wxsimupg.exe), which will leave your custom and initialization files alone, though if you're just moving to 12.9 from Version 9.6.5 or earlier you'll need to pay the $49 upgrade fee to be able to use Version 12.9 with your custom site(s). However, you will still be able to use your older version with the custom site(s), as it will not be replaced.
If you already have WXSIM and would like to try WXSIMATE, get wmatedem.exe. Note that if you don't already have Microsoft's Net Framework 1.1 (or later) on your computer (you likely do have it if you use Windows Update regularly), you'll need dotnetfx.exe as well. If you have already registered WXSIMATE, you need the upgrade (wmateupg.exe), which will leave your site code and initialization settings intact.
