How To Troubleshoot Clip Studio Not Updating

You may be having issues updating your Clip Studio. This isn’t common to you and can be fixed easily. When an update comes up, it is like a new program. So they need to be installed separately. 

So, when the new program is started using the old shortcut, it will open 1.5.4, linked to the shortcut. Also, it won’t let you install the new update. 

So here is what you can do. You can start by searching for where the 1.7 was installed and making a new desktop shortcut. You will now have two versions of the program, which may take up too much space on your computer. So, when you install the newer version, delete the old one. If your program isn’t still updating, ensure that you delete all the older versions on your computer to avoid compatibility issues. 

Don’t be in a hurry to delete anything yet, champ! Hold your horses. Before you delete anything, go to documents and see a folder called Celsys. Now copy that to a USB or somewhere, and then uninstall everything. Install the new update and without opening the software, go back to my documents and replace the new celsys folder with the one you had. Follow the quick steps below to uninstall the older versions. 

Go to the control panel -> Programs -> Uninstall. There you go! You should not have any problems installing your new update.
