No, just install over the previous one.

https://www.pluginguru.com/products/unify-standard/

"INSTALLATION of 1.0.12 Details:

PlugInGuru.com customers: Log in, and the new links are found on the “My Account” page. If you have version 1.0.9 working, download the 1.0.12 installer and the smaller “Unify Content 1.0.12 Update.guru” file from our site. This will add the new patches and fixes to the Unify Standard Library without requiring you to download the 2.5GB file again."

@smark

thank you for your help. Was looking in the manual for it but didn’t look where it was.

greetings from Holland

@smark Well, I'm there too, If I open the standalone version, it's updated to v1.1.10. But when I open it in my DAW, it is v1.0.12. I did rescan all my VST folders from within my DAW.

 

What am I missing?

 

Thanks!

@creativeforge, I could imagine that the last installation did install the vst file into another location. But your DAW still is pointing to the former location. What I would do is to make a backup of the vst file and then delete the vst file in the former location. Then I would install again and verify if the vst file is placed into the known former location. I can’t imagine that there is  a real big problem. Good luck. 🤞🏻

@creativeforge

@smark is exactly correct. You may have installed the newer Unify to a different VST folder than the one you used before. This kind of issue can be a bit tricky to sort out. Let us know what operating system you're using, and what your DAW is, and we may be able to help.

It's normally not necessary to uninstall Unify before installing an update; you would normally just install over what's already there.

The Unify manual is at https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual, which you can also find as an entry on the Unify Help menu (question-mark icon at bottom of the GUI).

@getdunne Thank you, I just used the exe file instead of drag/dropping on the GUI. 

 

Cheers!

The Unify installer (.exe on PC, .pkg on Mac) installs the Unify programs (stand-alone app, plug-ins, and many support files).

The .guru files you drag/drop to the Unify GUI are content (patch libraries, samples, presets... everything that is NOT a program).

@user476565

You don't have to install the updates in order, but if you're skipping versions (e.g. 1.0 straight to 1.4), then use the FULL installer rather than the "updater" to make sure you have everything.
