Just a question:
Is it somehow possible to tell the installer of Betas not to overwrite the current Release version? The OSX installer does not allow to install to a specific, different location than Apps and it finds older versions also being moved to different locations. My current way is to move older versions to trash before installing and restore them after install.
I'm just a user as you are. Being no Autodesk employee: I do not know where this road will lead to, nor do I claim to've all stuff got right.

Windows 10 64bit, same problem here its overwriting stable install,and that is not desirable, or seemingly logical.

I'll test on my MacBook later.

sorry, it is not possible to install them side-by-side. I will look into changing this but it is unlikely to happen soon.

No worries here, I just moved original to trash, installed beta, and restored, all is good.

I'd rather Your dev time was better spent as well.

Cheers

Still hoping that meshmixer support dwg/dxf file or max file. :( So strange that this autodesk file type but could not be opened. Thanks.
