This tutorial describes how to update Ledger Live Desktop on your PC.
Users with Version 2.29 or Older: If you're using Ledger Live version 2.29 or below, you won't be able to use the auto-update feature due to different signature certificates in older versions. This may cause the “Downloading update” bar to appear stuck. The solution is to manually update Ledger Live by downloading the latest executable file from ledger.com/ledger-live
Users with Version 2.30 and Newer: For those running Ledger Live version 2.30 or above, the app will automatically update to the newest version whenever you restart it. While this auto-update feature can't be disabled, you have the option to download and install a specific version by first uninstalling the Ledger Live and then downloading it from ledger.com/ledger-live/lld-signatures
If you're having issues installing Ledger Live after downloading it within the app, please make sure you’ve moved Ledger Live to the applications directory before installing it.
