Yes you can but I am not sure why you would want to go back that far with the versions. They are not compatible with sharing projects or anything and would probably still need a serial key. But here you go below is the link for older versions of software.

Can you say why they want the older version as the newest version has many more features and the older version is probably way out of date for today's world and video formats, etc. ? Just curious.

Hope this helps and thanks for posting.

thank you Fred
No idea why they want to.    Just old users that are set in their ways...

Are you talking about downgrading to Camtasia for the Mac? Camtasia Studio for windows version 2 will not work with current versions of windows.

LOL, that was my fist thought. I can't even imagine why anyone would go back that far.

Thanks Richard I forgot to mention that point. You never know what peoples reasoning in life is but maybe they have old systems and just play around with the software for other reasons. Just not sure why they would want to go back that far either though.

I wasn't directing laughter at anybody by my response. I have my own twisted sense of humor about some things. I certainly wasn't laughing at you Fred. I've learned some things through your postings over time.
I was actually researching SnagIt a couple of months ago. I was surprised that there is no SnagIt 1, 2 or 3 listed for download on the download page for older versions for windows.
 I confused that discovery with Camtasia.
So no offence intended. I was sure it was a MAC question.

I never said you were laughing at me Joe and I never took any offense to anything. All is good.
