Sawtooth Software: The Survey Software of Choice

Upgrading to Lighthouse Studio 9

Thank you for your interest in Lighthouse Studio 9! To learn more about all the new features, take a look at what's new in 9.0.

Before downloading and installing the software, here are four things to keep in mind.

  1. You must have an annual subscription. This is different than the older, perpetual licenses used with previous versions. If you aren't sure which you have or would like a quote on upgrading, give us a call at +1 801 477 4700 or send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.

  2. You must have a Sawtooth Software account and be listed as an authorized user. To learn more about how to create a Sawtooth Software account and manage your licenses, please see the following Knowledge Base article: What is a Sawtooth Software Account?
  3. Your computer must be running at least Windows 7 Service Pack 1.
  4. Don't upgrade live surveys just yet. Version 9 will not be able to import data from live studies made with previous versions of SSI Web. If you have a live study currently collecting data, please wait until data collection is finished. Then, open the study in version 9 and convert the survey to take advantage of the new analysis and simulator tools.
