[External Program] Blender Version Manager for 2.8

Hi there, problem is when you are behind the proxy, and program can’t check a new version because rules for firewalls are in power or system administrators :slight_smile: , and in this case i have to download new versions manually and put them in defined folder and then close app and start again, because without restart it doesn’t see new folder. So as an option it would be nice to have rescan/refresh local root folder for new blender versions.

Hi! Thanx for feedback!
You can use Pyinstaller to make a single *.exe from *.py.

@TitusLVR Hi!
I will add it to my list of features!

Hey I am getting error msg like these:

Could you help me find the root cause?

This is because BF are moving some of the scripts into another folder. And when you overwrite the old folder with a new version, it doesn’t delete anything, it just copies and overwrites. If you delete the oldest one of those (just go into each folder, sort by date and find the file) Then you just remove one of them, go back to blender and refresh the addons, and it will disappear…

OH ok thank you.

:slight_smile: no problem, has happened a lot of times for me as well…

Hi!
Please, attach “b3d_version_manager.log” if it exists next to “Blender Version Manager.exe”.
Check if you are using UAC protected folders like “C:\Program Files” or have old blender versions inside root folder.
For more info check out Wiki.
