'MoveFile failed' error during program update or installation
We get have seen this error ourselves on Windows 7 laptops that we use for testing MARC Report.
Rather than launch into a diatribe on Windows 7 1), the fix for this problem is quite straightforward:
- 1. Abort the installation
- 2. Log off of windows (do not 'Switch User')
- 3. Log on to windows
- 4. Re-run the installation
Alternately, waiting 5-10 minutes, and either pressing 'Retry', or restarting the installation, seems to work.
This problem seems to be easily reproduced.
- 1. Start MARC Report
- 2. Quit MARC Report
- 3. Try to install an update
Windows 7 seems to have some .exe locking issues; in the scenario above, even though we quit the program, window 7 refuses to overwrite it for some unknown reason.
Maybe this behavior is a security feature and not a bug
