Qxtender & Plugins - Download & Install

*** Plugins are typically downloaded and updated from within Qxtender *** Instructions

(however, if you need an installer that includes the plugins, see bottom of this page)

Download Qxtender Version 3.65 installer (ZIP file) - (4.15 MB) 26 Oct 2023

Download Qxtender Version 3.65 installer (EXE file) - (4.18 MB) 26 Oct 2023

  • If you already have Qxtender installed, use its integrated Online Update utility to update to this new version -- it will be a much smaller & faster download.
  • If you choose to download the ZIP file, extract the installer file (qxinstaller.exe) and run it (double-click on it).
  • If you choose to download the directly executable EXE format installer, your browser may warn you that the file is "not commonly downloaded and may harm your computer," or something similar. You can safely ignore the warnings.
  • On Windows 8 and later, after the browser downloads the installer and performs its security scan, you may need to click on the MORE INFO link in order to click the "Run Anyway" option to complete the installation.
  • All Qtools Software installers and application files are digitally signed so that they can not be tampered with and you are assured they are malware-free.
  • The minimum supported version of Windows is now Windows 2000. Windows 95/98/Me and NT 4.0 are not supported as of Qxtender 2.60.

Windows Vista & Higher: Version 2.20 and later of Qxtender is fully compatible with Windows Vista/7/8/10. You will be prompted for elevation to Administrator rights during installation.

Windows 2000 & XP users must be logged in as a user with Administrator rights when installing or updating Qxtender.
