New version : checking the extensions

Unread postby spatz » Tue, 01 May 2018, 08:35

Hello,
Before installing a Basilisk’s new version, is there a way to check that the already installed extensions will still work?
If Yes: how?
If not: once the new version installed, how can we go back to the previous version?
Thanks for your replies
Regards

There is not, because this is a glitch in the wizard that wasn't actually designed for this kind of version jump, and not actual compatibility issues.

You shouldn't have to! If extensions stopped working, just reinstall them and that should fix your woes.
