Yam228 FileLister 3 Install. 2010-05-08 19:16:24
I had to rebuild my PC recently (dead MOBO)!
When I try to install FL3.0 it pops up a window saying - "Error opening file for writing:
C:\Program Files\Filelister\filelister.dll

On checking the "Program" and "Windows" properties it said they were set to read-only so I unchecked the box and applied to folder\subfolder\files, but that didn't work.

I'm sure it's me and not FL, but could anyone point me in the right direction pls?

WinXP SP3 Home

You seem to have an old dll lying around registered for your folder context menu.
The easiest way to unregister it would be to choose run from the start menu
and enter: regsvr32.exe /u "c:/program files/filelister/filelister.dll"
or what your path happens to be.

You might need to restart windows before this take effect but after this you should
be able to remove the file and then able to reinstall filelister. If the above
solution doesn't work you might have to remove the handle manually from the
register. But let me know in that case, the above should do exactly the same automatically.

Best regards,

Thanks for the really quick reply... if only support was like this from bigger orgs!

Tried the unreg command, message said succeded but install still failed, did a search for the dll and there was a folder already there for FL. Did an install to a different folder (Program Files\FL30) which worked fine, including start menu option.
Did an uninstall from Start Menu to remove FL30 and then ran uninstall from FileLister folder - windows reboot - reinstall default - worked fine.

I've no idea where the original folder came from as Win XP is a clean install, unless I'd forgotten I'd installed it already. There are loads of stange things happening follwoing my re-build of the system.

Thanks again for your help, and thanks for two great pieces of software.

PS This was second program to be reloaded, NFOpad was first once Windows and Office had been reloaded.
