The current version of HKL-3000 distributed by HKL Research is version 715.

For the Rigaku detectors (Raxis-IV++, Raxis-HTC, Pilatus3 R 200K, and others) HKL-3000 is available as a bundled software and distributed as HKL-3000R. HKL-3000R users should contact Rigaku directly for information about the latest version. 

HKL-3000 users who have obtained their license directly from HKL Research can download the installer for the latest version from our ftp server ( The password can be obtained from You may also use a graphical ftp application, or use the command "ftp" from a terminal window (to open a terminal window in MAC OS X, open the Finder's Go menu, choose Applications, then choose Utilities and select Terminal). Ftp should use the passive option:

ftp -p

HKL-3000 interacts with many widely used programs like CCP4, SOLVE, RESOLVE, MLPHARE, SHELXD and SHELXE, ARP/wARP, DM, MOLREP, REFMAC, and MolProbity. These programs must be obtained directly from their respective authors or distributors.
