2.3   Updating From a Previous Version

There are two ways to update to the latest version of EagleFiler:

Automatic Updating

  1. Launch your old version of EagleFiler.
  2. Normally, EagleFiler will automatically check for updates and detect that a new version is available. If you have turned that feature off or don’t want to wait for the automatic check:
    1. Choose Software Update… from the EagleFiler menu.
    2. Click the Check Now button.
  3. Click the Download & Install button and follow the on-screen instructions.
  4. You may be asked for an administrator password to ensure that incorrect file permissions on your Mac do not prevent the update from completing, leaving your Mac in an inconsistent state. The username and password for the automatic update are the ones for installers and logging into your Mac. They’re not related to EagleFiler. If you don’t know your password, you can reset it or update EagleFiler by following the “Manual Updating” instructions below.

Manual Updating

  1. Go to the EagleFiler Web site and click the Download (Free Trial) button.

  2. Quit EagleFiler.

  3. Replace the old EagleFiler application file with the new one. That is, if EagleFiler is installed in the Applications folder, drag the new EagleFiler application icon into the Applications folder and click Replace when the Finder asks if you want to overwrite the old version.

    Note: If you get an error saying that the file is locked or you do not have sufficient privileges, drag the old EagleFiler to the trash and empty it, and then drag the new one into the Applications folder.

  4. Launch EagleFiler.

Mac App Store

If you purchased via the Mac App Store, you should update EagleFiler using the App Store application.
