PERMANOVA+ Add-on Update

Note that the PERMANOVA+ add-on licence is purchased in addition to the PRIMER 6 one.

This combined update will update PRIMER 6 and the PERMANOVA+ add-on.

The current version of PRIMER is 6.1.18 and PERMANOVA+ is 1.0.8.

Note that this version uses the .Net Framework 4 and some older versions of Windows are no longer supported. It needs Windows XP with service pack 2 or later, Vista, 7 or 8. Either 32 bit or 64 bit is supported. If updating PRIMER versions before 6.1.13 this update includes some significant changes to program functions, and there is a manual supplement that can be downloaded below.

This is applied as a patch and requires an undamaged PRIMER 6 installation with the PERMANOVA+ add-on.
