Descriptive Problem Summary:
When an update of the BYOND software is reported over the pager, downloading and updating via the pager does not appear to function on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. My user account is an administrator. I did not have any BYOND applications other than the pager open (and the pager should have been closed by then)
When I try to update, I get an error message box telling me that some files could not be updated, and that I should try again as an administrator, with a 'retry' and 'cancel' button. 'retry' just brings up the dialog again, and 'cancel' brings up an 'installation cancelled' window.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
- Get a message from the Pager indicating an updated BYOND version
- Click the hyperlink in the message
- Click the 'update' button (Or whatever it's called)
- Wait for download to finish
- Click 'ok' on 'Is it ok to update?' window.
- Get error message
- Updating of the install, and maybe a UAC window
- Install failure.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often?
All the time, for the last two BYOND updates. Have not tried updates prior to that.
In other user accounts?
I don't have any other user accounts, but this one is an Administrator.
On other computers?
I don't have any other Win7 computers, haven't test.
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
I don't know.
Download the update file and run it directly from the BYOND website.
