How to update in detail 16.2.5 please?

PostFri Jul 31, 2020 9:22 am

I backed up my database. It seemed to not take very long at all. Anyway, I want to know how do I update. I see a zip file. Do I uninstall the previous version? Or do I simply extract and run the new version 16.2.5? I'd love to know, as I searched across the forums and there's no real explanation I can find anywhere the correct procedure? Thanks.

If you are on Windows, uninstall the previous version of Resolve via Control Panel - Programs and Features. On a Mac you can just install the new version over the old. I take it you are updating from an earlier version 16.

Yes, unzip the file and away you go.

I have never had a problem with a Windows installation, and the database has always been retained.
