I use two different computers for work - my laptop and my desktop - both on windows. I was running DemandTools V v22 on both and when I opened it up I was notified there was an update to v24.1. I downloaded the update and tried to install it on both machines. On my desktop it installed no problem.
On my laptop, though, the notfication comes up and I click download, then I get a notification to restart the application. I click Restart. I get the notifications asking if I want to allow this application to make changes to my device and I confirm those. Then it starts to install and I get an error saying Validity DemandTools cannot be closed. Please close it manually and click retry to continue.
No matter how many times I click retry I can't get past this stage. I end up having to cancel out of it and then I get a message that says "Failed to uninstall old application files. please try running the installer again: 2". No matter how many times I run it I get into the same error loop.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? If so, how did you resolve?
I have a scheduled job that runs daily on my local machine (laptop) and thought maybe that was preventing it from being closed but I went in and made that job inactive and still get the same error message. I've thought about uninstalling the whole thing and doing a fresh install but I don't want to lose my scenarios or scheduled job that I have set up.
Let me know if you have a fix that will allow me to upgrade without losing anything. Thanks!
