Seems to be a double \\ in file name

The error 5 is "access denied" which is typical for Windows 7 installations. However we will double check the file name, just in case.

Update: The double "\\" didn't make a difference on W7, but for aesthetic reasons, we will correct for 614.


Thanks.

Desktop.ini already exists in this folder, it's a hidden file, but with full access for everyone. This ini file has a 'date created' and 'date modified' of 29/12/2009. I see no reason why you should be updating this file.

Are you trying to create a new ini file, in error, where one already exists?

It's because Desktop.ini already exists.

1 - I renamed Desktop.ini to oDesktop.ini
2 - Installed 612 over 613
3 - A new Desktop.ini was created by the installer.

Clip of log:

Looks like the wizard needs to check if Desktop.ini exists before trying to create it.

If the file is hidden the wizard wouldn't find it anyway until it tried to create it. In either case, its working as expected, although the error log might be causing concern.

I never run the configuration wizard when doing an update. Keeps from destroying things that I've set and have forgotten about.

When it gets to the point where it is ready to run the wizard, I just cancel. My settings are then left untouched.

That's not always possible. VRD checks certain options that are set by the configuration wizard and if they are not already set it will force you to run it before VRD will even launch. We rarely add these kinds of options, but we do occasionally.

I can understand that. I'd rather not run the wizard and then have VRD force it if there is something new.

Has the wizard been updated so that when it is run, it reuses all of the previous user settings? It hasn't in the past, hence my logic for not running it.

This code finds hidden files:

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

If Not objFSO.FileExists("Desktop.ini") Then

WshShell.LogEvent WARNING, "Hidden Desktop.ini NOT found"

WScript.Quit(2)

Else

WshShell.LogEvent WARNING, "Hidden Desktop.ini found!"

WScript.Quit(0)

End If
