Download Match! Pre-release Version

On this page you can download the most recent pre-release version of the Match! software. Please note that this version has not been officially released and may still contain bugs or other inconsistencies! The current official version can be downloaded from here.

The most recent version is 3.14 Build 229 (created April 27, 2022).

In order to update your Match! version 3 installation to this most recent version please perform the following steps:

  1. If Match! is running, please save any open documents and close the program.
  2. Please DO NOT uninstall the previous version before installing the new version! Instead, simply install the new version on top of the existing version. This is important to make sure that your license file is retained.
  3. Download the installer file for your platform from below and uncompress ("unzip") it if necessary.
  4. Make sure that you have administrator privileges on multi-user systems, then run the installer by double-clicking on it. More details about this topic are given in the platform-specific "Readme" files that are also available from the Download page.
  5. Follow the steps in the installer until it has finished, then restart Match!.
  6. Check whether the update was successful by selecting "About Match!" from the "Help" menu.

  • Pie charts showing the phase and elemental composition are now displayed in the report (feature not available in Windows XP/Vista version!)

  • New commands "File / Export / Pie chart" available for exporting pie chart graphics, presenting the phase and elemental quantitative analysis results.
  • There now is a separate version for Windows XP and Vista 32-bits. The "main" 32-bit Windows version now requires at least Windows 7.
  • You can now also insert additional diffraction patterns from Match! document files (*.mtd), using the menu command "Pattern / Insert/overlay..." as usual. If a Match! document file contains more than one experimental pattern, a window will be displayed where you can select the pattern(s) you would like to insert into your current document.
  • The display of the warning message regarding a large default FWHM can now be suppressed by marking "Don't show again" in the corresponding window. This can be useful e.g. if you import diffraction data in a batch script.
  • Due to a bug, the diffraction pattern was not displayed after loading a Match! version 1 document if a different reference database was used for saving.
