osgeo4w-setup.exe update "In-use file" issue

Reported by: Mike Taves Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: major Component: Installer
Version: Keywords:


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.

It should be possible to continue, and reboot to get the new one. The newer package actually copies the executable to a temporary name before running it specifically in order to avoid this update-itself problem.
