Upgrading Omnis/User pic 10.22 Runtime

 omnispic.df1 is in firstruninstall/convert/omnispic.df1

I can see a few places where things might get hung up:

1) When you built your installer, if the installer is pointing to older/other copies of that file, rather than the one within the omnis runtime tree

2) if you DID NOT alter the resources in ‘resources/English/localizable.strings’ to tell omnis where your firstruninstall folder is deployed to…. then those files went into. the users ~/Library/Application Support/Omnis folder.

if files were already there, then they would NOT be replaced.    hence, maybe why you are getting issues.

I’d go in there and clear out all the folders that said Omnis R/T for the version of omnis you are using so that next time you start studio, it will recreate the folder.

that way…. you’ll get the latest of omnispic.df1.        

 I’ve had zero issues — and thats probably because I always:
1) specify the omnis resources file 'resources/English/localizable.strings’ a new folder for each runtime version of omnis
2) clear out the omnis folders in ~/Library/Application Support/Omnis every time I run a physical installer so that I know I get all the latest files I keep in ‘firstRunInstall’

thats by guess.
