How to update Audirvana Studio to 1.8

Please help, I cannot update my Audirvana Studio

Jim_F described it for Windows. If you are using a Mac you can also click on the menubar and choose update from there.

Thats what happened on my Windows Notebook. Any Ideas?

App installation failed with error message: Das Paket"Audirvana.Audirvana-4118-9684-d80dbb7827cd_1.8.1.0_neutral_~q3nymrkmej12j" kann nicht installiert werden, da bereits ein anderes Paket "Audirvana.Audirvana-4118-9684-d80dbb7827cd_1.3.0.0_neutral~fec4hfhj3emgj" mit dem gleichen Namen installiert ist. Entfernen Sie das Paket "Audirvana.Audirvana-4118-9684-d80dbb7827cd_1.3.0.0_neutral~_fec4hfhj3emgj" vor der Installation. (0x80073cf3)

Thanks to everybody. My problem is more like the message as BerndM gets I think, obwohl Ich keine Deutsch versteht.

Thanks again, one have to remove the old version. Why not notice this on the download page.

Hi folks,
Noob here, can anyone help with the following message? many thanks.

Nice treat for IT specialists, which i am not. When I follow the path, there is a “microsoft” folder behind LocalCache/Cache, and this folder ist empty, no Audirvana/Audirvana . In my opinion, an update has to work without a mess like this. I´m paying for this.

I agree with you, but there is a technical limitation that forced this change. I’m sure that Audirvana team would have also loved to be able to continue updating seamlessly, rather than having to hear people complaining.

Ask somebody to help you with this. That’s the easiest way.

Thats what I did…

I think you should go to programs, uninstall the version you have right now, then it should be possible to download the new version…

You are right, it should not be a problem to install the new version, there is no excuse!!!

But but, how do I update my Audirvana Plus , I have un installed the old version 3.5, but where do I find the latest version?

I’m having the same problem here. My old 3.5 is still stuck at 3.5.46. While AS doesn’t seem to have any problems updating to the latest version.


Ended up revoking my license on the installed version. Uninstalled it and downloaded the latest version. Now it installed correctly, but I have to wait 24 hours before I can activate it again.

Pretty cumbersome if you ask me.
