PSPad - download

PSPad - current version 4.5.8 (2500) - 03 September 2014

Full program version including English help file. PSPad does not require installation, it can be simply unpacked into any directory. The archive contains subdirectories and must be unpacked with subdirectory preservation enabled. Desktop and Start menu links, as well as system integration can be later created by choosing Program Settings/System Integration from PSPad's Settings menu and selecting the appropriate checkboxes. Everything is user controllable. Also available is an installer version that will automatically perform all of these tasks according to user preference.

The distribution does not contain spellcheck dictionaries. However, these can be downloaded freely from the bottom of this page.

This is the latest full version, but PSPad development continues. PSPad beta versions are published in the PSPad developer forum. If you discover a problem, please have a look at the beta forum first to ensure that the issue has not been addressed already.
