    I'll admit, this feature to allow running a previous (stable) version seems critical at this point.

    Yea, I mean the very nature of this software is that for a certain subset of users it is handling huge amounts of incredibly varied data over very long amounts of time, so it must be impossible to find edge-case bugs for those users before releasing an upgrade to the general public. It’s pretty easy to test against simple datasets, but the power users are going to throw some crazy challenges at the software that will reveal bugs that may require days or even weeks of reconstruction time to even find, let alone fix.

    This is all fine, just part of the process, but also I can’t just wait around wasting days and weeks of my year, trouble shooting issues, and waiting for fixes, when I’m on a deadline and I know that previous versions just worked.

    You can download installation file for a wanted release here: https://support.capturingreality.com/hc/en-us/sections/115001056925-New-Releases

    To uninstall you current version, you need to have its installation file and open that file.
