  • Version 3.x Programs Are Here!
    Version 3.x Programs Are Here!

    Districts and schools with SAM Servers hosted by HMH will notice their programs have been upgraded to version 3.x. Documentation has also been upgraded.

     

    Districts and schools hosting their own local SAM Servers may now download their version 3.x programs. HMH is discontinuing shipping installation DVDs.

     

    Note that SAM version 3.x will deactivate older versions of SAM and SAM Suite programs. These programs will need to be upgraded to version 3.x to work with SAM version 3.x. Any existing installation running SAM version 2.x may be upgraded directly to version 3.x. Other programs will automatically reactivate after installing the 3.x version.

     

    For instructions on downloading the version 3.x installers, see the Installation Guidesfor your programs or contact Product Support at 1-800-283-5974.
