You can download Pretty Good Solitaire from http://www.goodsol.com/download.html . Or, if you have a previous version installed, you can run the game, go to the Internet menu, and select "Download Latest Version". Be sure to exit the game before you install.
Version 15.1 is a free upgrade for users who originally ordered version 13 (ordered since April 12, 2011) or have paid for an upgrade since that time. It is not a free upgrade for users who originally ordered version 12 or below. Users of older versions can upgrade for $11.95 at http://www.goodsol.com/upgrade.html .
The quick way to determine whether you need to upgrade to use version 15.1 is to look at your registration code. If your registration code starts with "43", "42", "2a", "2r", or "2g", the upgrade is free and your registration code will work in version 15. If your code worked in version 14 or 15.0, it will work in version 15.1.
If you have lost your code and need to type it in again, you can request that your registration code be sent to you again from http://www.goodsol.com/regusers.html . Note that you should only need to type in a code again when installing on a new machine or after a Windows upgrade or reinstall.
Pretty Good Solitaire is US$24.95 for immediate electronic delivery. If you want an additional CD, there is an option to add $9.95 shipping.
You can order online from http://www.goodsol.com/order.html . In addition to installing the basic game, the CD also installs all of the currently available extra card sets.
