​Retired Products End of Support for Legacy Desktop Software

To: All Neat desktop software users:

The Neat Receipts application will not open the database, so I have no access to my documents saved using Neat Receipts Professional software. Luckily, I only save documents for about a year several years ago. As time goes by, there is less and less chance that I will need the documents I can't access using Neat Receipts software.

For the past several years, the Neat Company has been developing a comprehensive new software platform that performs better than and provides enhanced features for, the latest in document scanning, storage, and retrieval. Our latest solutions allow for streamlined operations on all platforms including: Windows, Mac, Android, Apple iOS, and browser access through our web application at app.neat.com. In addition to performance and infrastructure improvements, we have taken the most popular features from our previous OS-specific desktop applications and enhanced Neat with new features only available on the new platform, such as:

Neat Smart Organization System. NOTE: This version is an out of date and has not any updates or enhancements since 2017. You can continue to use this app, but we have an amazing New Neat Experience you should check out! Download the latest version of the Neat for Mac software. Once fully downloaded, double-click (or hold the CTRL key and click) on the dmg file in your Downloads folder to mount the installer as a disk image to your Desktop. Double-click on this disc image on the Desktop to open the Neat installer.

The newest Neat scan utility platform also has support for non-Neat scanners. This allows you to use our scan utility with your existing multi-function printers (MFP’s), TWAIN-compatible scanners (for example, brands such as Panasonic and HP), and Fujitsu ScanSnap devices!

End of Support for Legacy Desktop Platforms:

In 2015, Neat stopped developing feature enhancements, updates, and/or bug fixes for the versions of Neat desktop software listed below. Effective March 1, 2016, Neat announced the end of support for these versions:

Versions impacted:

  • Windows – Neat version 5.7 and all previous versions
  • Mac – Neat for Mac version 4.5 and all previous versions

Downloads for these final versions of the desktop software (v5.7 for Windows; v4.5 for MacOS) are no longer available for distribution or download.

MacOS 10.15.x Catalina Users:

Neat Legacy software for Mac is not compatible with Mac OSX 10.15 Catalina. Upgrading your OS to Catalina will render your Legacy software inoperable. The PDFs of your data can be recovered by accessing your 'Neat Library' located in your computer hard drive.

Windows Users:

Effective October 2019, Microsoft removed the Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 Redistributable Packages from their website, and they are no longer available for download. Neat Legacy software for Windows relies on certain Microsoft C++ libraries that are no longer available. As such, upon new installation/re-installation of Neat v5.7 or earlier for Windows, the installation will not complete.

If you are still using the Legacy software for Windows, we strongly recommend that you move your data out of Neat, by exporting all your data to PDF files. If your Legacy software crashes or stops working, there will be no way to recover any of the data stored there due to this update.

Options for Current Users:


Users currently on one of these legacy versions of Neat software can continue to use the legacy Neat software for as long as you would like, however, agent-assisted support for these versions ended on July 31st, 2018. Again, we highly recommend moving your data out of Legacy Neat to maintain your data integrity.

All current Neat Desktop software (Neat 5 & Neat for Mac) users are eligible to upgrade to the newest version of Neat. Note that all versions of Neat software after 2015 require a paid subscription to use.

​Retired Products Retired Desktop Software Options

In March of 2016 Neat retired its outdated desktop software and exited the scanner market to focus solely on Neat Cloud in order to provide relevant services. We recognize that some of our customers prefer our prior retired software or simply do not care to use any cloud-based services. You may be thinking ‘What do I do now?’ or ‘What does this mean for me?’. In light of that, we offer the following options for you to consider in order to make use of your Neat scanner and/or software:

Option 1: Continue using the Retired Desktop Software

If you already using a retired version of Neat, then you can continue using the product as is. Retired versions of Neat do not require a subscription fee for use. Please keep in mind that the retired desktop software is not supported and the installation link for these versions are no longer available. We cannot guarantee the integrity of your data if you choose to continue to use a retired version of Neat.

Option 2: Migrate to the Cloud

Migrating to the Cloud will require that you subscribe to one of our cloud plans, if you do not already have one. The Cloud offers many advantages such as unlimited storage, the ability to access your information from any where, a mobile app for your phone, and the ability to integrate your data with other accounting software.

Once you have subscribed to a Cloud plan, we would be happy to assist you with migrating to the Cloud Powered software.

Option 3: Continue using your Neat Scanner without the Neat Software

We understand that neither of the above options may work for you and so a third option allows you to continue to use your Neat scanner, but without both the retired software and the Cloud. To learn how to use your scanner without Neat software, please click here.
