Updating / Removing older Ladybug + Honeybee versions
In case you have v1.1.0 or v.1.2.0 already installed
1. Create a Ladybug » (Panel) 5 : .. » LB versioner component.
2. Create a Params » Input » Panel component and write "1.3.0". Connect it to the ‘version_’ input of the LB Versioner component.
3. Create a Params » Input » Boolean Toggle component and connect it to the ‘_update’ input of the LB Versioner component.
4. Double-click the Boolean Toggle and set it to True.
The new version will overwrite the old one, thus, only the components of the updated version (1.3.0) should now be found in your panels.
In case this has not happened, try to install version 1.3.0 following the installation steps as described in Installing Ladybug Tools v.1.3.0.
During the installation, the files of the 1.3.0 version will overwrite the files of the older one, so that in the end you will have only v.1.3.0 installed in your computer.
In case you have Ladybug v.0.0.69 & Honeybee v.0.0.66 or older (Legacy plugins) already installed
In general, the Legacy plugins work independently than the other versions, so having both of them simultaneously installed is possible. In this case, the panels and subpanels will remain separate in your Grasshopper.
However, it is not possible to connect components of different versions in the same script, since it will give you an error and you will not be able to run the simulation. Moreover, updating all the engines (Radiance, Open Studio) to the newest versions (which is necessary for Ladybug Tools 1.3.0 to be able to function properly) may create compatibility problems for the Legacy components.
Unlike the more recent versions (v. 1.1.0 & 1.2.0), the Legacy versions should be removed manually and will not be overwritten in case you install a newer version. 1.Go to Grasshopper » File » Special Folders » Components Folder.
2.Delete all the files / folders which are relevant to Ladybug / Honeybee / Ironbug.
3.Go to Grasshopper » File » Special Folders » User Object Folder.
4.Delete all the files / folders which are relevant to Ladybug / Honeybee.
5.Restart your Rhino & Grasshopper.
6.Follow the installation instructions as described in Installing Ladybug Tools v.1.3.0.
