The Naval Register: Patches & Updates Twenty-first century support for eighteenth century combat



Use the following procedure to apply a patch. None of your data or settings will be lost when patching, nor will your loaded products be changed in anyway. Please note that the files available here are not complete applications, and can only be use to patch an existing installation of The Naval Register.

  1. Download the zip file for the latest version below
  2. Unzip the file and copy the contents to the application's installation directory, overwriting any old files of the same name. Unless you changed it during installation, the installation directory will be "C:\Program Files\The_Naval_Register".
  3. Run The Naval Register, click on the Help menu, and then click "About." You should see that the application's version number matches what you downloaded.

View the change log for a summary of the changes in each version. The following versions are available:


The basic data within each add-on (i.e. the ship and scenario information) may be updated from time to time. This may happen due to the discovery of an error in the data, or may be the result of an official change in a scenario by the designer. When updates are made to scenario data, an email will be sent to registered owners of the affected add-ons to notify them. The only way to get scenario updates is to register your software.

The most recent add-on versions are listed below. To determine the version of each add-on that you have, go to the Maintenance menu, and launch the Add-on Viewer (called the "Product Viewer" in version 1.0 of the software):

  • Close Action 1.0
  • Rebel Seas 1.0

  • Years Of Victory 0.1

“We have met the enemy and they are ours...”

“It follows than as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious.”
