Installation files for recent versions of HF prediction software are available here. To install a program, download and save the installation file. Next, right-mouse click the file and then run it as an Administrator. The InstallShield Wizard instructions are self-explanatory.
When the program is run for the first time, it will prompt the user to enter a valid software registration key. If no valid registration key is entered, the program will enter the demo mode with limited functionality. The ASAPS demo mode restricts predictions to a fixed date (January of the current year), level of ionospheric activity (T index=50), and the amateur frequency set; otherwise the user is free to input a range of data, and explore the program's different display formats.

ASAPS 7 is a fast, stable release of ASAPS built using Microsoft Visual Studio 2015. ASAPS 7 is compatible with recent versions of the Windows OS including Windows 10. A 32-bit version has been built for customers still using older machines. The design of ASAPS 7 is more functionally efficient and some rarely used features have been removed. These features include low resolution surface wave prediction and the advanced frequency set test algorithms. A minimum of 150 MB of free hard disk space is required to install and run the program.
ASAPS 7.01 is the same program as ASAPS 7.0 except that it includes antenna gain pattern data for several widely used antenna types manufactured by Barrett Communications.
ASAPS 6.2.2 restores the ASAPS 4 batch-mode capability and the import of 2D and 3D NEC antenna gain files.
