I ran the update but Serum is telling me I need to update

If Serum is not updating and you are on Windows OS, this is probably due to the fact that you are updating Serum but your DAW is looking for the VST plugin somewhere else (and you might have 2 versions of the Serum plugin installed).

  1. Look where your DAW is set for VST Plugins and delete Serum.dll / Serum_x64.dll from that location. 
  2. Verify that Serum is no longer available in the DAW. 
  3. Then quit the DAW and run the update to that location.

In FL Studio, check FL options->Plugin Manager, and delete any and all instances of Serum (expand window to the right if needed to see path) in Windows explorer, rescan and verify Serum is not available, then quit FL and run the update.
