Where can we download updates from?

We can't use the Octane Settings menu to get updates, because we are getting the "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error. That error has been fixed in newer versions of Octane for Unity, but since we can't access the menu to download it, is there a location we can download the files from? Or maybe a fix we can do to stop getting that error long enough to access the Settings menu?

Does the error happen on an empty scene?

You could create a new project, install octane in that project. Upgrade to latest.
Then move the octane plugin data (editor.dll, shaders etc) from the new project to your project.

If that dosnt work, Im looking into upgrading the unity store assets to the latest version, but that will take a bit of time.

Correct, we still get it in an empty scene. It just constantly spams this error in the Unity Editor:

NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
OctaneUnity.UpperManagement.AddManager[T] () (at <efdca34fdf8a4fd59cf79b20737b9366>:0)
OctaneUnity.UpperManagement..cctor () (at <efdca34fdf8a4fd59cf79b20737b9366>:0)
Rethrow as TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'OctaneUnity.UpperManagement' threw an exception.
UnityEditor.EditorApplication.Internal_CallUpdateFunctions () (at C:/buildslave/unity/build/Editor/Mono/EditorApplication.cs:191)

And because of that, opening Settings just gives us an empty window titled "PBR Settings".

That is a strange error, could you PM me the project so i can take a look?
