This has been around for many betas, I just hadn’t reported it before. I used to think that if I missed the update and had to uninstall before I redownloaded. Now I know that’s not the case, but it has led to a discovery.
When Scrivener uninstalls, it leaves behind some files in the registry I have to go and manually delete. This shows up if you ever do uninstall and reinstall because your Windows App/Programs will show multiple programs named Scrivener if you don’t go into the registry and delete the left behind bits first.
