Default Download WinIsd, what versión for Win10 ?

What is the latest version of Win Isd available and updated for Win 10?
It catches my attention that the version 07.950 of 10/29/16 still continues on the official website and they warn that it is a Beta, has nothing changed in these five years ?
Thanks for clarifying the point.

Since the developer's website says that this is the latest version, what would make you think that members here might be using a later version than this? It's not unusual for an application to get abandoned by its developer and that may be what has happened here. You might want to contact the developer directly and ask them your question.

I was using WinIsd since about 2002
So I am use to the older version

Then of course used the 2004 version when available.


The graphics and inputs were changed for 7.9
it has a new look.

You just enter driver parameters and you get alignments
not really much more to add to the program.

I just use the 2004 version on windows 10
because I'm more use to it.
Still does the same thing, enter driver parameters and go..

the Math for TS enclosures...about the same since the 1970's
and that is what it calculates.
You can manually adjust things as well and not follow true alignments.

My query was due to the fact that I wanted to do some new simulations in WinIsd with a netbook (Win 7) where v .07.950 was loaded.
It is already obsolete because it is too slow. So I wanted to install it on my new desktop PC (Win10), and the .exe installer repeats every time I click on the shortcut that I created.
So I thought it would be some problem of the outdated version, hence my query. But I finally used the netbook and everything was solved.
When I started using the latest version, I noticed that the help in it refers to the previous ones, and the steps and graphics are different, but I already did the learning experience at the time, I guess I can't pretend that they update it, since it is free software and perhaps the author will not have received many donations .....
Thanks for your answer.

Until some major bugs in the active EQ are being fixed, I can't recommend the new version.

I am still on the old pro alpha version for that reason.

In general the whole project seems to be on a halt.
One can also try VituixCAD, although comparing drivers isn't as user friendly as WinISD is.

I don't know what you mean by "active equalizer".
Perhaps the ability to drag the mouse through the frequency response curve and hear how it responds?
It's quite a fun feature, and I think it's unique to Win Isd that many don't know about.
Although I don't know how useful it can be with conventional PC speakers.
Yesterday I tested the FR of the subwoofer that I had designed and built with AKG K141 headphones and almost, almost, I heard 20 hertz !

No, what I meant is that in WinISD you can add active filters and EQ's

That part is broken in the new version.

Ok, understood, those extras were not necessary for me, with the latest version I achieved everything I needed.

VituixCAD has driver database browser (as a grid) with parameter filtering/criteria, record sorting, optional auto align while browsing drivers, enclosure projects and project groups, chart overlays, and all charts are visible at the same time. Idiots and beginners should use some other software due to number of features. That would help everybody - including me.
