New LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Software available

Dear LEGO Education user,

As a valued customer who has recently purchased and downloaded the new LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Software from the LEGO Education Online Resources web site (, we would like to inform you of an important software update.

Due to a number of major bugs found in the EV3 Software, a new version (v1.01) has been released. We strongly encourage you to use this new version going forward. The EV3 Software itself will also notify you about the availability of a software upgrade but In order to upgrade, you need to uninstall the existing EV3 Software version (v1.00) and download and install the new one.

To access the new version of the EV3 Software, simply revisit the LEGO Education Online Resources web site ( and repeat the download procedure. With the new files (the file name will state “01-01” instead of “01-00”).

If you have used LEGO ID for product activation, please login with your username and password at the top right corner of the web site. If you have forgotten your username or password, you can get help by clicking “Forgot your password/username?” Once logged in, go to the EV3 Software product page and choose the software download file you need.

If you have activated your product using an e-mail address, you can reuse the Access-Link that was e-mailed to you during the activation process. If you do not have the Access-Link anymore, you can repeat the activation process on the web site by typing in the Activation Code and the same e-mail address you used for the original activation. A new Access-Link will then be e-mailed to you. The Access-Link will take you to the EV3 Software product page where you can choose the software download file you need.

If you have also purchased and installed the EV3 Design Engineering Projects activity pack, then make sure you do not select this file during the uninstall process. If it is uninstalled by accident, download and install it again like the EV3 Software.

Please share this message with all relevant persons/colleagues.

Please contact your local LEGO Education distributor if you have any questions to the above.

We strongly apologize for the inconvenience this is causing you.

Kind regards,

LEGO Education
