Hello Aida,

We provide access to previous releases of our software that are up to two years old with respect to the current version on our website. Our full policy on Legacy Version Support can be found here.

Unfortunately, Zemax phases out versions of the software over 2 years old. After that, the phased out releases are no longer available to download. Since you are looking for a release that is more than 2 years old, you will need to reinstall a version that you previously downloaded. Perhaps there is a copy saved on a network share, another computer, or backed up to a CD? The name of the Zemax installer is always in the format “ZEMAX_YEAR-MONTH-DAY_PLATFORM.EXE”. An example would be ZEMAX_2011-03-01_X32.EXE. For OpticStudio, it's ZOS_YEAR-MONTH-DAY_PLATFORM.EXE.
