I want to rename an Electron app (packaged with
electron-builder), but when I change the
package.json from e.g.
com.bar.y and release it, Electron’s built-in
autoUpdater fails in the previously installed version with:
Error: Error: Could not locate update bundle for com.foo.x within file:///Users/<username>/Library/Caches/com.foo.x.ShipIt/update.<random_hash>/
After searching for this issue, I only found one other person dealing with the same problem. Neither the Electron nor the
electron-builder docs are giving any hints.
Does anyone have a workaround or solution? Help is much appreciated.
