System Requirements for Paratext 9.2 Beta

System Requirements

Windows Version:

  • Windows 10, 64-bit (Version 1607 or later, 1903 or later preferred)
  • Windows 8.1, 64-bit (not 8.0)

Additional Requirement(s):

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 (included in Windows 10 Version 1903).

Important information for Paratext Live users: 

Paratext 9.2 includes improvements to Paratext Live which make it incompatible with Paratext Live in earlier versions of Paratext. If your team uses Paratext Live, please ensure that everyone on the team upgrades to Paratext 9.2 before using this feature. Note: this does not affect Send/Receive which still functions normally between all versions of Paratext.

Instructions to download and install Paratext 9.2

The following instructions omit obvious steps (for example, “click Next”).

  1. To install while connected to a good Internet connection, download and run the Online installer below.  The installer will only download certain system components if they are not already on your computer. To install on a different computer that is not connected to the Internet, please download the Offline installer.  It is larger and includes all the components that may be necessary.
  2. Double-click the downloaded installer file.
  3. Agree to the license terms and click Install.
    This step might take a few minutes if the installer needs to install system components on your computer.
    If a dialog appears and asks for your permission, or for administrator credentials so the Installer can make changes to your computer, click Yes or provide the credentials as required.
  4. When the Destination Folder step appears, do not change the default unless you have a strong reason for doing so.
  5. When the installation has completed click Finish and then Close.
