When installing components using the Spread .NET Installer to install components from a version older than our most up-to-date release, it must be in Offline Mode to select the older releases components.
Customers tend to reach out with the inquiry:
I am trying to install v12 but after downloading and opening the Spread .NET Installer I only see the latest releases components.
This typically is solved by simply changing the mode to Offline.
