I’m running Scrivener 1.54, and was asked to update upon launch. I followed all instructions, update was downloaded, and I clicked to relaunch and install—nothing. I then went to the Scrivener site, followed instructions, paid (with discount) for update. Received my email receipt for paying for update to 2.0… but still can’t update version 1.54 to 2.0 on my Mac. Instead, every time I launch Scrivener I just keep getting the same pop-up box that alerts me to a new version (2.0) and asks me to update. Even though I have already attempted to do so 3 times. I’m at a loss, now.
Anyone have some quick advice as to what is going on here? If more details are needed, please specify and I’ll be happy to include more info.
I was finally able to get the update to download. 2.0 is ready to rock and roll, except that now it is telling me that my Serial Number Name and actual number do not match. I’m not sure what else to do, I’m copying, letter for letter, the information supplied to me via email from Literature and Latte. Will keep trying.
As the instructions in the 1.54 update pop-up explain, you need to download version 2 from the website. Because it is a paid upgrade for many 1.54 users, there was some confusion about that when people just clicked to download and install the update without reading the “paid” notice and were then cast into trial mode. Unfortunately because of the Sparkle framework for 1.54, there wasn’t a really good way to go about addressing this, so in the end it was adjusted so that clicking upgrade doesn’t grab 2.0 but 1.54 again, forcing (hopefully) people to actually read the notice and realize they’re going to have to pay.
Obviously in your case you get it free, yay! But you still need to download from here and install it, then enter your new license number and name and you’ll be good to go!
Thank you! I realized after the first several attempts and, on re-reading the notice, that I was probably lacking the relevant brain-cells this morning (lack of coffee anyone?) to digest what the notice was telling me. I then read:
