Attempted quick install on the PowerShell but got the error "Unable to resolve dependency 'sc3plugins (≥ 3.11.1)'". I got as far as attempting to install SuperDirt using the SuperCollider IDE and got the following error message:

I'm assuming maybe there is some problem since I may have some previously installed components on my computer (I have Sonic Pi installed which I think uses SuperCollider as well).
I'm a beginning coder looking for a challenge, but I want the challenges to happen AFTER I install the program. Devs need to understand that us laypeople can't easily troubleshoot a problem like this. I humbly ask the devs to code up an easier installer PLEASE.
