Q. How do I update my Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) software?
I need to update my CSD software and data packages. Where do I download the updates?
The best way to update your CSD software is to download the current version from our Box folder. This contains all of the software available under Georgetown's institutional site license to CSD-Enterprise, including:
- CSD Python API
Installation files are broken out by product and include the software's installation and use documentation as well as a text file with the customer number and key code required to authorize the software during or after installation.
If you already have an authorized installation of CSD software, it can be auto-updated within the Mercury and Hermes interfaces.
CSD-System Data is updated on a quarterly basis. The best way to update these data packages is through the auto-update function within the Mercury and Hermes interfaces.
CSD-System Data can also be downloaded for manual updating. Visit the Data & Software Updates section of the Downloads page to select the appropriate data package. In order to download, you will need to create a free CCDC website account of your own. Please note that this account is not tied to Georgetown's institutional subscription, is not tied to your standard NetID login, and will not provide you with the customer number and key code required to authorize software.
