What IDE? What version do you have? What is the new version? What happened when you tried?

The way I do this is to initially download the zip version instead of the installer version and extract the zip. I create a folder called 'portable' in the 'arduino' folder and then all the extra sketch/libraries/cores I install using board manager and library manager are installed in the portable folder.
When I wish to upgrade the IDE I rename the 'arduino' folder (usually add the version on the end) and download/extract the newer IDE, all you need to do then is copy/move the portable folder from the old version to the new version and you have updated t the latest version.
Don't PM me for help as I will ignore it.

Which operating system are you using?

Are you running the Arduino IDE in portable mode?

OK, so forget about portable mode. If you are using portable mode, the update process is different, but using portable mode provides no benefits whatsoever to updating (in fact it makes it more difficult), so use portable mode if you actually need it, but don't do it for the sake of updating.

There are two methods for installing the Arduino IDE on Windows 7, each with their own update method:
  • "Windows Installer, for Windows 7 and up" - Download the new version and run the file you downloaded.
  • "Windows ZIP file for non admin install" - Download the new version and unzip it to whatever location on your computer you prefer. You can delete the old installation, or you can leave it installed if you want to have the option of running either version of the Arduino IDE (likely not necessary).


Before updating, make sure that you haven't saved anything to the Arduino IDE installation folder. Anything in the Arduino IDE installation folder will be lost when you update. Generally, people save their sketches and libraries to a separate location (the sketchbook folder). The sketchbook folder is not affected by updating the IDE.
