Walk-Around Install: a required update to Theatre Manager

This step is only necessary if you have a version of Theatre Manager that has NEWER components than any version in use (eg an update to the word processor). These walk-around updates require that the entire copy of Theatre Manager be installed at each workstation. While we endeavor to minimize the number of 'walk-around' installs, it is not always possible.

If you are asked to get an update before you can log in, then simply download the installer and update your machine by clicking the Get Update button. TM will ask your preferred browser to download the installer - which should be placed in your normal download folder.

When doing a manual upgrade from an older to a newer version of Theatre Manager, it might be easier to:

  • download the OSX, Windows (or both) installers to one workstation
  • quit Theatre Manager on all other workstations that are giving a message requiring an update to components
