Installing Extenders fails
« on: September 24, 2017, 02:34:46 pm »
Whatever Extender I try to install: It fails. Running setup.wbt I get Error 1008, presenting command "FileCopy(thisfile,destfile,0)". More Error-Info: "CopyFile error: 5.

I had to reinstall winbatch completely. Now I want to get it back to normal.

Thank You for any help.

Error 5 is a Windows system error that means "access denied".  Your setup script needs to write files to the destination folder.  You need to check the permissions on your WinBatch installation folder and subfolders.   If you have a copy of the extender already installed, make sure administrators have write access to all extender files being installed in the target directory.  Also make sure no scripts that load the extender are executing when you attempt the installation.
