I have a site license but I'm not able to find the download for the software anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


According to an education Community Manager you should have received a link when you purchased the licence.

If you didn't receive one you should contact your reseller - it depends on which region you are in as to whether logging in to the LEGO education site would enable a direct link for you.



You have to be logged in with your credentials, then click the download button.


The software for the LEGO Education version of the EV3 needs a license (either a single license or a site license). AFAIK, all EV3 Education purchases come with a Software License, which also includes instructions on where to download the software.

There is nothing preventing you from using the retail (non-Education) version of the software though, which is a free download from http://www.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/downloads/download-software. It might prompt you to update the firmware on your EV3 to the "Home" version (currently v1.09H) but you can always switch back to the "Education" version (currently v1.09E).

  • Yep, looks like they've changed the sales model since this was last asked - as the UK Education shop now offers sets with Software, as either a "1 set" or in multiples for 2, 8, 16 or 30 pupils - there doesn't seem to be distinction between single or site licenses any more - possibly due to the tablet based tooling. – Zhaph - Ben Duguid May 16 '16 at 9:57

Please try this link and choose the software you want http://www.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/downloads/software/ddsoftwaredownload/

  • Hi Calin - that's the "home edition" unfortunately, which doesn't have the data logging and other capabilities of the Education edition. – Zhaph - Ben Duguid May 20 '14 at 9:07

You can download the Education Edition for the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 here (footer of the page). It is available for free.

You only need a valid LEGO ID for a login. If you haven't a LEGO ID you can create one on the linked page.


If not yet had a license: Try download at this site but it will cost you RM2120 (if you're rich)...: http://lego.sasbadi.com/product-details.php?id=46&type=robotics&iframe=true&width=900&height=510

If already bought: Just follow the link at the license and enter the codes!(might need to make an account for the web)

  • Is it an official reseller? – A.L Aug 31 '16 at 11:21
