Ticket #45 (new defect)
osgeo4w-setup.exe update "In-use file" issue
|Reported by:||mwtoews||Owned by:||warmerdam|
In the past day (Feb. 3-4, 2009) I've re-run C:\gnu\OSGeo4W\bin\osgeo4w-setup.exe (using Start > OSGeo4W > Setup) on my setup to add/update various packages, and when the program is at "Installing .. setup-1.0.3-6 .. /bin/osgeo4w-setup.exe" I get a dialog (see also attached):
In-use files detected
Unable to extract /bin/osgeo4w-setup.exe -- the file is in use. Please stop all Cygwin processes and select "Retry", or select "Continue" to go on anyway (you will need to reboot).
It seems to me that this is circular logic, as the setup is running and trying to update itself from version 1.0.3-4 to 1.0.3-6.
I've repeated this behaviour on two XPSP3 computers and on a Win2003 Server.
