Attention: For detailed screen shots describing how to purchase, download, install, register, and configure Win-Test, please review the Win-Test Installation, Registration, and Configuration Guide by following one of the links on the FAQ Page.

Download the software

Win-Test is provided as a trial version, free to use for 15 days. You can download it from

The trial version randomly quits, between 30 minutes and 2 hours after startup, and exported files (Cabrillo, Reg1test, ADIF) are limited to 50 QSOs.

If you wish to use Win-Test without these limitations, or if the 15-day trial period has expired, you can purchase a licence and register the software for a fee of 50 EUR.

One licence entitles you to use Win-Test on an unlimited number of computers. However, registration keys must be provided on each computer which can be requested here.

If you fail to receive an email with your registration details, please check your spam folder. Occasionally, Win-Test emails end up in spam due to the content of the email being written in three different languages.

Should you have any issues, please use the mailing list for further support.

Install the software

Install the software in a directory on your harddisk you like, normally in

C:\Program Files (x86)\Win-Test.

You can install new versions over a previous version. If you upgrade to a new major version (like from V3 to V4) your old registration key will become invalid and you'll have to acquire a new one.

Although a Windows program, some have managed to get Win-Test running on Linux in a Windows Emulator called wine on Linux.

Registering the software

You can register the software here.

After you have entered your registration details, you will not see a "thanks for registering" dialog or such-like; however, you can confirm registration was successful by restarting Win-Test and if all went well, you will no longer have to press the [1], [2], or [3] buttons.
