Reinstalling and Updating Project Specific Packages

You can reinstall corrupted packages and you can update them as well if a new version of the package has been released. In this article, I will show you how to reinstall and/or update project specific packages.

Reinstalling Project Specific Packages

1. Make sure that you already opened the project. If you have no idea how to do this, please see the Opening a Project article.

2. Under the Currently Installed List Box on the Project Specific Packages tab, select the package you want to reinstall.

3. Remember to use the search bar if you are having trouble locating the package you want to reinstall.

4. Once the package is selected, click the reinstall button.

5. A message box asking you to confirm will appear. If you want to proceed with the operation, click yes.

6. Another message box will appear asking you if you wish to make a backup of the project. We recommend that you make a backup project when you are making changes to project assets.

7. If you clicked yes, the save file dialogue box will appear asking you where the backup should be saved.

8. After making a backup or if you selected no on the message box prompt asking you if you want to make a backup, the reinstallation process will commence. Please be patient as the operation might take awhile. Once done, you will receive a confirmation saying the reinstallation process has been completed.
