Service Pack for KISSsoft 03/2008

There are four different versions for the latest Service Pack available: as self-extracting archive (extension .exe) or as zip-archive and with the CAD Modules

**Download Service Pack 7**

This Service Pack includes an update of KISSsys. Models created with prior versions can be read again. Please read the notes for the KISSsys update.
If you still have problems contact support@KISSsoft.ch and enclose your model
