Since version 1.7, Bommer has supported distributing updates through an in-app update mechanism. This guide explains how to
How do I know what version of Bommer I am on?
Updating via in-app updates
When you finish reviewing the new changes, click OK to perform the update.
Updating or reinstalling from the app store installer
There are times when you may need to upgrade or reinstall from the app store installer. This is required if you are currently running version 1.6 or earlier; this also may be required if we release large changes to the app that cannot be deployed using the in-app update mechanism. To upgrade or reinstall from the app store installer, go to the Fusion 360 app store and download the latest version of Bommer. Once you download this file, run it to go through the installer. You will get to this pop-up, on Windows, or a similar pop up on Mac:
My upgrade failed, what now?
First, we apologize for this inconvenience. As much as we strive for excellence and making sure nothing crashes sometimes accidents do happen.
There are two scenarios that may happen here. Either Bommer will detect that there has been an issue during install and automatically roll back to the previous working version you were on. If this happens, please notify us of this and we will work on fixing it as soon as possible.
The other scenario is a complete failure to install. At this point, you can re-install from the app store installer (as described above). If that still fails, please contact us and we will help troubleshoot.
Rolling back to the previous version of Bommer
What if my rollback failed?
If your Bommer rollback fails, your best action is to install from the app store installer; while this may not get you back to the specific version you wanted, it will get you to a stable version of Bommer. Also, please let us know what happened, and why you wanted to roll back. We do our best to ensure each version of Bommer works great for all of our users and will work hard to resolve any issues you have.
