Move the 3rd Party SDK to a shared folder location so you won’t have to re-download it again.
Install the new version

Now your done and you can continue developing.
I may try doing a github version to see how it work so that I can just keep updating one folder instead of having to keep moving files around.
But I need to use a git client like GitKraken instead of having to run it in the terminal.
