Error installing 9.50 beta 4

Post by *Alexey Lukin » 2019-11-07, 17:18 UTC

When installing TC 9.50 beta 4, I'm getting an error message: Could not open file C:\Program Files\TotalCmd\NOCLOSE.EXE for writing. The installer then quits and the installation does not complete.
The apparent reason seems that NOCLOSE.EXE is running during the installation. Killing the process does allow the installer to complete.

Do you run the TC setup via Shift+Enter? If so, noclose.exe is launched, und thus can't be written to by the setup.

I don't think so, I've run it from Firefox's downloads window. However it's possible that one of command-line windows has been open that could have used noclose.exe.

I'm having the same problem.

But when I try to install it, it says "Can't install because the file C:/Program Files/Total Commander/filesystem.txt is missing. Is it trying to find a Total Commander file? I don't know.

I'm afraid that you should run TC installer as Administrator to properly install TC in Program Files. At least don't turn off UAC and run installer from Windows Explorer rather than directly from the browser.
