Re: problem updating to NVDA 2018.1


did you try restarting your computer?
it can help resolving many issues.
if not, you can uninstall previous version of nvda and reinstall new
version, or use system restore.

Hi all,

3. progress as usual, yet, when the program was installing, the
following error message pop up
The installation is unable to remove or overwrite a file. Another copy
may be running on another logged-on user account. Please make sure all
installed copies of NVDA are shut down and try the installation again.

Retry Cancel
4. I try clicking retry and the problem is still there
5. I then click cancel and the install program quit
6. I press ctrl alt n want to call back the original NVDA, however, the
old NVDA didn't run.
 7. with sighted assistance, I try running the 2018 exe file again,
however the same error message appear again.
8. I try logout again and run the 2018 installer again, however the
error appear again
9. I have to run the old NVDA 2014.4 installer, and the NVDA is restored

Any advice would be helpful, thanks.

I would not do it.
