For a manually initiated update of the database version

This step is only necessary if you have been provided a version of Theatre Manager that has NEWER components than any version in use (eg an update to the word processor).

Before doing a manual upgrade from an older to a newer version of Theatre Manager, please:

  • download the OSX, Windows (or both) installers to one workstation
  • quit Theatre Manager on all other workstations

Downloading and Installing

For Windows computers For OSX computers
  • If you have not done so, download the latest version of Theatre Manager and save it to your desktop. Some borwsers will automatically put the file in the 'downloads' folder.
  • Extract the Theatre Manager zip file (if OSX did not automatically extract it)
  • Double click on the installer "Theatre Manager" to install Theatre Manager an follow the install instructions for OSX

After installing Theatre Manager

  • Start Theatre Manager
  • After logging in on you workstation, log back in any other workstations
Once Theatre Manager is started, it will compress the part of Theatre Manager into the database. Each user that starts after that will automatically receive the latest version. This is a 'push install' from your server and is automatic.

Some updates may have major underlying changes to various components of the application. These updates require that the entire copy of Theatre Manager be installed at each workstation. We endeavor to minimize the number of 'walk-around' installs. It is not always possible.
