Typecast 2.8.2 – 2.8.5 Released (Requires Manual Upgrade)

This is unfortunate, and I apologize for the inconvenience. I don’t (yet) have a way to test upgrades without publishing a release. Unfortunately, I upgraded the installer I use and it had a problem. This broke upgrades for Typecast. (I will make it a priority to devise a way for me to test the upgrades before I publish them.)

When you run Typecast, you’ll see a message about an error with SharpCompress. You can ignore this and continue to use Typecast, but it will never be able to upgrade. In order to upgrade, you can either download the full installer from 12noon.com or follow these steps:

    1. Open the Windows File Explorer.
    2. Go to the Typecast installation folder: C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Typecast\.
    3. You should see at least two “app-2.8.x” folders. For example:
      • app-2.8.1
      • app-2.8.2
  1. Open the lowest-numbered one. (In this example, app-2.8.1.)
  2. Run the Typecast.exe in that folder. It should upgrade to 2.8.5 (or whatever the latest release is). (If this doesn’t work, download the full installer.)
  3. If it upgrades to 2.8.5, you need to download and unzip this file in the new app-2.8.5 folder. (Yes, confirm that you want to overwrite the files.) If it upgrades to a later version, it’s already been fixed and you don’t need to do anything.

If you have any issues, please contact me using the Support page at 12noon.com.
