Oxford English Dictionary, OED, Version 2.0 Free patch to allow use with Windows 2000

Please note: These instructions are for the version 2.0 product. Version 2.0 is no longer the current version. If you use version 2.0 frequently you may want to upgrade to version 3.0 for the following reasons:
  • It installs to disk as part of the normal installation process.
  • It does not require you to verify the CD every time you start it the way version 2.0 does. Instead you only have to do this every 90 days.
  • It also has better search capabilities.
  • It includes the three addendum volumes.
  • Nicer interface.

You can patch your OED right away and don't have to wait. We have provided the patch on-line as a service to our customers!

Here is a letter of explanation we obtained from Oxford University Press Technical Support. My thanks to Oxford University Press for allowing us to provide this patch on-line.

Please print this page and then download the patch.

The OED Version 2.0 Software is not native to Windows 2000, and we do not officially support it on this platform. We do have a patch to update the license, however, that has worked for most users.

Please down load the patch using the link below to your hard drive, and then use WinZip to extract the contained files into a new temporary folder on your desktop. WinZip is a downloadable utility that allows files to be compressed and sent over the Internet. If you do not already have WinZip installed on your machine, please go here to download the latest version: http://www.winzip.com/downauto.cgi?winzip80.exe. Complete the download and follow the onscreen directions to install.

After extracting the CDFR243.ZIP file into the new folder, run the file named CDSET32.EXE to perform the update, and restart Windows when this has completed. Also, please ensure that you are logging onto Windows 2000 using an Administrator login with full admin rights. The program will not run if you are only logged in as a power or regular user.

Editing change in italics.
