Question

How to upgrade Tableau Reader.

Environment

Tableau Reader

Answer

To upgrade Tableau Reader, download the current version of Tableau Reader from the Tableau Reader product page and follow the on-screen instructions. 

Additional Information

  • Only the most current version of Tableau Reader is available for download.
  • Tableau Reader for Windows is available in both 64 and 32 bit versions.
  • You do not need to uninstall the previous version of Tableau Reader in order to upgrade. For example, Tableau Reader 9.0 and 10.0 can be installed on the same computer.
  • A new maintenance upgrade of Tableau Reader will overwrite pre-existing installations of the same major version - for example, Tableau Reader 9.3.4 would overwrite Tableau Reader 9.3.0. However, installing a new major version of Tableau Reader will not overwrite different major versions of Tableau Reader. For example, installing Tableau Reader 10.1.0 will not overwrite Tableau Reader 9.3.4 or 10.0.0.
