Won't Fix

Issue ID




User is not warned that Editor has to be restarted to build with newly added module when installing it while Editor is running



Reproduction steps:
1. Open/create any Unity project
2. Enter Build Settings
3. Select any not currently installed platform
4. Click "Open Download Page" button and download the installer
5. Start installing the module without closing the Editor
6. When the installer asks to close Unity as it might interfere with Installer, note that it doesn't say anything about restart is necessary to build with the newly installed module.
7. Click "Ignore" and proceed with the installation
8. After installation is done, go back to the Editor and switch build target to the newly installed module
9. Notice that there are no build settings available and it is impossible to build

Expected result: User is warned during the installation process that Editor restart will be necessary to build with newly installed module
Actual result: No warnings are present

Reproducible with: 2018.4.26f1, 2019.4.9f1, 2020.1.3f1, 2020.2.0a21

  1. Resolution Note (2020.2.X):

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. As noted in the bug, a warning is shown that Unity is still open. While it is not ideal that we don't add an additional message about restarting the application, or force closing it, this is the classic installer dilemma that Windows users have seen before, and they are warned that the Editor is still open. Unfortunately at this time, we do not have the resources to fix and test the change when compared to other more pressing issues.
