Upgrading Katalon Studio


#1

Hi everyone

I’m just wondering what is the best procedure to follow to upgrade Katalon Studio when a new release appears. Do you guys overwrite the old install? Rename and archive the old install and start over?

I checked the FAQ documentation for “Setup and Installation” but didn’t see any mention of this.

Thanks in advance!
Russ

Hi there,

Our next major release 5.4 will have an update mechanism so you won’t need to re-download a new version of Katalon Studio and overwrite it again.

Regards

Thank you, Vinh. But what should I do now? Overwrite the existing installation?

Hi Russ,

Please download the latest version 5.3.1 of Katalon Studio and unzip the package. It won’t override your existing version and will start a new instance. Simply save the project on the existing install and open the project on the new install to continue work on it.

Thank you for choosing Katalon Studio,
Liam

Doesn’t seem like this is in this latest version yet, eh?

It wasn’t in 5.5. How about 5.6?

Since version 5.4, Katalon Studio will automatically check for new update and notify you for further action. Please refer to this guide.

Thank you for choosing Katalon Studio,

Can you please try again or just download a new one from our website? We are in the process of uploading our update package, so likely something is breaking the upgrade process

  • Hi, Update is not working in Katalon 6.0.4 version to upgrade to next version available. It’s prompting for a newer version when available, but every time, it’s taking me to download page, instead updating the available version, any workarounds to be done?

I have the same issue than Sandeepteja, the upgrade does not work and each time rederecting me to the full download page. Do i really have to do it that way (uninstall and reinstall)?

I’m in version 5.8.3

I’ve downloaded the new version and installed it beside my 5.8.3 version and beside my 5.5 version.
And of course I’ve lost my preferences…again… this is soooo niiice!
