It is intended to be used for your trial purposes with files, that cannot be fit into Mimosa Small School Edition. The files created with both of these versions are fully compatible with the commercial version.

    Installation and upgrading instructions for the Trial and Free versions:

    Mimosa suggests that

    1) Mimosa Trial Version is installed in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Mimosa-demo\ and
    2) Mimosa Free Version is installed in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Mimosa-free\

    in Windows folder system.

    You can change the folder according to your preferences. When you update and install Mimosa again and you select here another folder, all previous settings and user rights are still as before.

    Installing Mimosa in its default folder is sometimes restricted by your Windows environment and your administrator rights, and to avoid this problem it is simpler to install Mimosa in your own root folder (such as C:\Mimosa).

    If you upgrade your Mimosa version from an older version, please note that...

    1) You do NOT need to Uninstall the previous version of Mimosa
    2) Your current Mimosa files are NOT deleted or modified (except pre-installed "sample*.mfw" files in "data" subfolder)
    3) Your current settings and user rights are NOT changed
    4) You can upgrade from ANY previous Mimosa version directly to the current version

    If you download a Mimosa update within a few days of its release you may find that your antivirus software gives a warning that very few other internet users have downloaded the file and, for that reason, it might be suspicious. Some antivirus software products will even recommend you abort the download. These warnings can be ignored. If you feel uneasy about doing so, just wait a few days and try again. The warnings will disappear after enough of our users have been brave enough to download the latest version!
