Scapple 1.4.1 for Windows Now Available

Scapple 1.4.1 for Windows is now available! Scapple 1.4.1 is a free update that adds several minor enhancements and provides a handful of bug fixes. You can view the full list of changes here.

Scapple 1.4.1 requires a manual update.

To upgrade from 1.4.0

Simply download the 1.4.1 update installer and run the .exe file when Scapple is closed to update to the latest version.

To upgrade from 1.2.6 or earlier

Beginning with 1.4.0, Scapple is now a 64-bit application and requires a 64-bit version of Windows to run. To upgrade from an older, 32-bit version of Scapple:

  1. Uninstall your current version of Scapple by using Windows File Explorer to navigate into Scapple’s installation folder (by default C:\Program Files (x86)\Scapple if installed by an administrator or in your user Documents folder if installed by a standard user account). Double-click the “uninstall” file to remove Scapple.

    If the installation folder remains after the uninstaller completes (for instance because it contains downloaded spell-check dictionaries), right-click the folder and choose Delete.

  2. Download the full Scapple 1.4.1 installer. Choose to save the .exe file if prompted. Once downloaded, run the .exe file to install Scapple.

Uninstalling the older version of Scapple will clear its Open Recent menu but will not delete existing Scapple board (.scap) files from your computer. Once you have installed 1.4.1, the files will open normally in the new version via File ▸ Open... or through File Explorer. Your Recents list will repopulate with the newly opened boards.

Support for 32-bit Systems

If you are working on a 32-bit version of Windows 8.1 or 10, you should continue using Scapple 1.2.6. If you need to reinstall 1.2.6, you can retrieve a copy from our legacy downloads page.

To check your system type, click the Windows Start button and choose Settings ▸ System ▸ About.
