An older version of SnagIt 2020?
You can but it requires a complete reinstall of the program.
Plus, you need the original installation files of the older version. And the activation key of course.
There was a time you could download a lot of previous versions . Now they tend to delete all but the newest version at the TechSmith website.

I wouldn't go quite THAT far, Joe... but you need to dig it out of the graveyard at https://www.techsmith.com/download/oldversions



The other thing is that I expect that you'd lose your library of captures, though it depends on how far back you go.

Perhaps my wording  should have been clearer. I thought a SnagIt 2020 update may have been the issue.
The comment was  addressing Major releases in general.
It used to be you could download a whole slew of minor versions from every Major release.

Now , If you want roll back to 20.1.1 or whatever you were running until until 20.1.2. broke SnagIt. You best hope you saved the Original installer.
I manually download & install updates for that reason. Archiving the files for long periods of time just in case.
