Updating Rhino 6 Fails ("A newer build of Rhino is already installed...")

Hi McNeelies,

My workplace Rhino (6.30.20239.17111, 08/26/2020) just prompted me to update. When I run the updater I first get this error:

Followed by this one:

With this log on the desktop:

Rhino_6_20200909093939.zip (10.3 KB)

I installed the latest WIP version yesterday, I wonder if that might be causing this?

Thanks and best,

Same error here with Version 6.28.20199.17141, 07/17/2020

Any information on this?


This appears to have resolved itself somehow.

Hi Julian - you currently have 6.28 and you’re prompted to update to 6.30 and this fails, correct?


Hi Pascal,

like with @AndersDeleuran it resolved itself after sometime.
But initially I was asked to Update to a new Version (from 6.28) and that always failed with the error message “A newer build o Rhino is already installed”

But now everythings fine, thanks for coming back on this!
