Do you have
Howler 9.2 installed already?
If you already do, and only if
you do have a complete legitimate installation,
then you may download this update patch and
enhance your current v9.2 installation with this
one. That will convert it to v9.2c
This is not for Artist 9.2 or any other
This is not for v8.x or any prior versions
This is only for update from 9.2 or 9.2b, and only
of the Howler edition.

It contains four files:
Note that we wrote 'Instructions', and not
Installation. That's because this is not an
installer, and certainly not a full installer. It
is just a Zip archive file containing 4 files,
which you must copy into the folder where your
current Howler 9.2 version lives.
Right-click the download files to save the target
directly into your current Howler installation
folder. Then extract its files from it. Or, save
the archive elsewhere, and thereafter open the zip
file and copy or move (drag) them to their
final destination, i.e. into the folder where your
current Howler 9.2 installation is already
You don't remember where it is? By default, your
Howler 9.2 installation should be found here:
but that may be different on Windows XP or if you
chose a different location when you installed it,
or if you are on a 32-bit version of Windows, and
possibly for other unnamed reasons.
Important! In case of Error.
After replacing the original files with these new
ones, you may observe an error when first trying
to run Howler again. This is most likely because
the newly replaced file has to be registered,
which was done for the old file automatically
during the execution of the full installer.
Here, with this update batch, there is no
installer. You therefore need to run it once as
Administrator. Simply right-click the icon
or file or menu-item from which you launch it and
select Run as Administrator... if
available. Or right-click the new dogwaffle.exe
file and run it as Administrator. This should be
needed only once.
You may have UAC (User Account Control)
preventing this file replacement, or in some cases
an antivirus with complete file lockdown. If so,
you may need to temporarily(!) disable those.
It is also possible that you might still have a
session of Howler running. You may then want to
launch Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Tab) to see if any
instance of Howler is still running, even perhaps
as a zombie process, or surrogate COM process...
It might be a good idea to reboot the system in
that case. It will be faster than us trying to
support your call for help and trying to explain
how, and what, and why...
This is meant for Windows 7 or 8.
It may also possibly work on Windows Vista too.
(but not yet tested/confirmed. If you test it,
will you let us and the Dogwaffle community know
if it worked for you?)
This may also work on WIndows XP, but you should
know that Microsoft has official ended support for
Windows XP, and we are not guaranteeing much on XP
either. If it works, great!@ If not, it's time to
upgrade to a newer version of Windows.
You will need a relatively new computer processor
chip. The old single-core chips probably won't do,
because they likely don't support GDI+. That is a
feature we started to use for displaying the
interface graphics since version 9.2. See what's
new in 9.2 - the world's cutest T-rex.
