Re: Setup 2.693 unable to replace files through reboot
a) can't work on network drives
b) needs write access to the registry key:
c) may fail if "the System volume is a basic volume [ ... and ... ] the
destination drive or the source drive is located on a dynamic volume"
Further information, this Key appears to exist only if such operations are
I triggered a re-install of cygwin 1.7.3-1 again, and got this in the key:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Or, more readably:
However, after a reboot I still have these files:
$ ls -l /bin/cygwin1.dll*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 Administratoren None 2.5M 2010-04-03 11:29 /bin/cygwin1.dll*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 mandree root 2.5M 2010-04-03 11:29
$ ls -l /usr/sbin/cygserver.exe*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 mandree root 150K 2010-04-03 11:29 /usr/sbin/cygserver.exe*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 mandree root 150K 2010-04-03 11:29
I would have thought that the .new files were gone after the reboot, or
these got somewhat more appropriate owners (I always run setup.exe as
Administrator, and have it install "for all users")...
