Prior Versions of GLD/Build History

Below please find download links to the installation packages for previous versions of GLD. Please note that we only actively support the current version and the two most recent prior versions. In other words, at present time we support GLD2014, GLD2012 and GLD2010. Once a version becomes three generations out of date, both support and upgrade credit value decreases signfiicantly. Therefore, we recommend keeping your version of GLD up to date.
