Sibelius 3.1.5 for Mac OS X

Who needs this update?

If you have Sibelius 4 on either Windows or Mac, or if you have Sibelius 3 on Windows, you don't need this update.

If you run Sibelius 3 on Mac OS X and have upgraded to the latest version of Scorch (Control-click in a Scorch window to see its version number: the affected version is Version 4.0.1 or later), you need this update. If you don't use Scorch, you don't need this update.

If you run Sibelius 3 on Mac OS 9, you don't need this update, because you cannot run the latest version of Scorch.

Do not update Sibelius when you're in the middle of an urgent piece of work: there shouldn't be any problems updating, but don't tempt fate.

  • Exit any programs which are running, including Sibelius (choose File > Quit).
