EViews Software and Data Download Area

IHS EViews posts current shipping versions of key files for all of our software, as well as whitepapers and assorted data files.

While the downloadable versions of our software will not run unless you already have the appropriate version of EViews previously installed on your machine, they may be used to update your installed EViews to the currently shipping version of EViews. Note that patch files are cumulative - you only need to run the latest patch file to obtain all patches.

To determine if your installed EViews is out-of-date, you can compare the "build date" of your version of EViews with those posted below. Your version's build date is displayed when you select "About EViews..." from the EViews Help Menu.

Note that EViews 8 and EViews 7 users may wish to use the auto-update features built-into the software to automatically download the latest updates.
