Download and Installation Instructions

Download and execute the proper version of Paralog for your platform below. Every version comes with an easy to use installation program which will guide you through the setup process.

Important

The trial version available from this web site is fully functional except for one minor restriction: It will download only one jump profile from your logger/GPS. Once you are satisfied with the software, this limitation can be easily removed by purchasing a license key. Paralog is free of any spyware, bundles or ads and offers simple install and uninstall.

In order to download data from your freefall logger you need to set up communications as described by the manufacturer; bearing in mind that not every device is compatible with every computer (details available here). Instructions for setting up your logger are available here.

As Paralog is continually developed and improved, it is a good practice to regularly install the latest updates. Please see the 'Updates' page for details.

It is strongly recommended that you make a backup of all downloaded files in case you need to reinstall the software at a later date.

The current version of Paralog is version 8.1.8, released 2014-07-21.
