Metered Edition & Trial Download Page

1) Use of the HydroCAD Metered Edition is governed by our standard software license agreement.  You will be asked to formally accept the agreement when you install the software in step 4, below.

Note: The Metered edition will replace any existing HydroCAD installation on your PC.  If you already have a full HydroCAD program that you want to preserve, please install the Metered edition on a different computer.  If you're trying to update a different edition of HydroCAD, you must use the correct download.

2) Click here to begin the download. 

Save the file to your windows desktop under the suggested file name HydroCAD-Cetrus2-setup.exe

3) If the download fails to start, disable any anti-virus software or download manager which may be blocking the download.

4) When the download is complete, click (or double-click) the downloaded file (HydroCAD-Cetrus2-setup.exe) to begin the installation.  (If you get a "corrupt file" message or other error, your download file is incomplete.  Delete the download file and repeat the download.  The complete file should have a size of approximately 6MB.  See the download tips for further details.)

5) When the installation is complete, we suggest that you delete the download file (HydroCAD-Cetrus2-setup.exe), which is no longer required.  If you have problems with the installation, click here for technical details.
