SnapPlus 16.3 is available for download and installation onto Windows Vista through 10.
Previous versions used Web installers for a smaller download; starting with version 16.0, we are simplifying to a single installer that, once downloaded, can run without an Internet connection.

See the SnapPlus 16 Release Notes for details on what is new and updated in this version.
Late-Breaking: Updated RUSLE2 Database for Northern Counties
Some crops were missing from the RUSLE2 database (the “GDB”) for some northern areas of Wisconsin. This patch supplies new RUSLE2 databases with the missing data. If your installation of SnapPlus 16.3 fails to provide soil-loss or phosphorus index numbers for certain crops in Zone 4 (e.g., Oconto County), install this patch. The patch only contains the RUSLE2 databases, it will not otherwise affect your SnapPlus software or your existing data. Download 16.3 GDB patch (ignore any messages about “this file format not supported”; just click “Download”).
Important Note for 16.2, 16.1, and 16.0 Users
16.3: The new crops and tillages in RUSLE2 for 2016 were omitted; 16.3 provides them.
16.2: We noticed after the release of SnapPlus 16 that a certain sequence of uploading to SnapMaps, downloading, and restarting SnapPlus could lose some of the users’ SnapMap Features (e.g., wells). 16.2 fixes that problem, and is a recommended download for all SnapPlus users.
16.1: Out-of-date soils, crop, and tillage lookup data inadvertently included in 16.0. All users should upgrade to 16.2. If you upgraded from 16.0 Beta to 16.0 Release, it is possible that some of those data for your fields may have been lost. Please contact us at email@example.com for assistance in recovery.
SnapPlus requires Microsoft Windows; Windows Vista is the earliest supported version for SnapPlus 16. This is also the last SnapPlus version to run on Windows Vista. See Minimum System Requirements for details.
How to Install
SnapPlus uses a standard Windows installer and will install .NET 4.6, the Microsoft SQL Server CLR Types (not the entire SQL Server product) and Microsoft ReportViewer if needed. This requires Windows admin privileges. A typical install should take just a few minutes. See our quick guide to installing for more details on installing SnapPlus.
Windows Installer Upgrade for Windows Vista and XP
If the SnapPlus installer won’t run on Windows Vista or XP, you may need to upgrade the Windows Installer part of the operating system. The download for that upgrade is:
If you would prefer to manage your own prerequisites, you can download components as MSI files and install them separately.
