#5708 closed Bug report (outdated)

Unable to install Version

Reported by: Bruce Lang Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Install unsuccessful Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista


Immediately following the successful downloading of, I accept the instruction to install and I get "error 5: access is denied" and can proceed no further.

I can go to the downloaded .exe file and begin the install, but then I get "error opening file for writing..... /filezilla.exe

.... Abort-Retry-Ignore"

If I click "Ignore" the install proceeds and finally says the new version is installed.... "do I want to start Filezilla?" I click yes and nothing happens.

I re-launch Filezilla and is still operating (satisfactorily), telling me that a newer version is available.

Maybe the target directory is not writable by your user?

Do you still have that problem when upgrading?
