What are the advantages of downloading software instead of ordering CDs?

Juliana Caiazzo Updated by Juliana Caiazzo

CFS has discontinued CDs as a delivery option for our software.

Downloading software has large advantages over CDs. Many new computers do not even include CD drives. You always get the newest version of a program when you download. CDs can only be produced when significant updates are made, and they become outdated as soon as any more updates are released.

You don't need to keep CDs for past versions of the software. Prior year versions of the software are available on our Past Releases download page.
