If you have a registration key for AQ version 15, and wish to download the installer file again, the links you will need are found, below.

While a version 15 registration key is required to activate all the features of Ancestral Quest 15, a key for the earlier versions of AQ 12, 12.1, or 14 will allow access to the features pertaining to that version, plus the 'free' features of AQ 15. If you do not have a registration key at all, the program will function with limited features as Ancestral Quest Basics.

The following table will show you which features will be unlocked by your key.

Your Registration

15 14 12.1 12
15 X X X X X
14   X X X X

No Key         X

NOTE: All users of AQ 12 and above should always download the latest build of the latest version. You will not lose any functionality* that you had before, but you will be assured of getting the latest patches, as well as some new free features available as part of the free AQ Basics.

* There is one exception to the claim that users of older versions will not lose any functionality when updating: if you are running AQ on a 32-bit version of Windows, and you have been using the PDF capability that was available in versions 12-14, realize that version 15 no longer supports that PDF option, as most users now have 64-bit versions of Windows or a Mac, and this feature was unusable to them. If you want to print PDF files, you will need to download a PDF driver from the Internet, or use the built-in PDF driver of Windows 10.
