[Solved] PrusaSlicer experimental autoupdater not updating
PrusaSlicer experimental autoupdater not updating
It would seem that the experimental standalone PrusaSlicer's included new autoupdater is not updating from 2.3.2 to 2.3.3. This would appear to be due to the file on Prusa's site that host the update info not having yet been updated , which is in fact still stuck at 2.3.1.
I did try emailing about it, but the person who I was talking with may have been confused with what I was saying, which makes sense considering the relative newness of the updater. I figured it may be easier for this to get to who it needed to get to at Prusa by reaching out more generally to the forum.
My 2.3.2 beta installation didn't Auto update, but My 2.3.1 installation did update automatically to 2.3.3
so now I have SL1s profiles in both the Beta, and the newer full release.
My profiles did update, but PrusaSlicer itself hasn't updated from 2.3.2 to 2.3.3. PrusaSlicer itself pops up a message and tells me that there's an update and directs me to the GitHub releases page (and I could manually download and install from there but that's not what I'm looking at doing for the scope of this I guess bug report post), but the prusaslicer-updater.exe in the PrusaSlicer install directory reports that "Your software is up to date", and looking at the URL that it's using to fetch update data tells me why it thinks that, as it seems that the file hosted by Prusa for the prusaslicer-update utility is still reporting 2.3.1 as current.
Is your 2.3.2, a full release, or a beta / release candidate?
It is a full release, installed via the "Standalone" option shown here, with the caption talking about the new auto-updater. Edit: To be clear, I installed using the Standalone installer back when 2.3.2 was current, and the auto-updater mentioned is not updating me to 2.3.3 because the link I posted earlier is not telling it to.
All good now
Hey, actually. I went and looked at the link I posted earlier and it looks like someone at Prusa got it brought up to date. I ran the prusaslicer-update.exe from the PrusaSlicer install directory, and wham-o, now I'm on 2.3.3.
Thanks to the person/people that updated the file!
