The end of Design Studio updates...

Provocraft have announced that they will no longer be releasing updates to Design Studio. This includes both program updates and Content (cartridge) updates. Here's their announcement:

"In order to focus our attention and resources on creating and improving the Cricut® experience, we will not be providing further updates to the Cricut DesignStudio® software. In addition, any cartridges released after April 11, 2013 will not be updated to appear in the Cricut DesignStudio® software. We will still offer support, but there will be no additional content updates for the Cricut DesignStudio® software."

The final content update (v130401) was released early April 2013. That update contained the following cartridges:

Animal Antics
Boho Graphics Iron On
Brooklyn Iron On 
Creative Cards
Creative Memories Tiny Treasures
Folk Art Festival
Outdoor Man
Simple Cards
Something to Remember
Teresa Collins December 25th.

Any cartridges released after the above won't be added to DS.

You can download the above update from:

(Select Cartridge Update 2.)

Any previous cartridges will be found in the Program Update (cartridges released up to Nov 2009) and Cartridge Update 1 (cartridges released after Nov 2009.)

I'm trying to sell my Design Studio. I, maybe, used it once many, many years ago. Is there going to be a problem if someone new goes to use it?

Hi Robin,

The serial number that you used when you installed DS can only be used on one computer. Therefore whoever buys it won't be able to activate it.

You could call PC before you sell it and have them deactivate the serial number but they generally only do that if you are wanting to install it on your new computer or if your computer has crashed for example....... ;)
