Serious problems with 2.5 installation
Posted 09 June 2012 - 05:59 PM
I tried starting it, went into the actual directory, tried starting if from there, just error messages all over. I then removed it, downloaded manually, installed it, and it still won't run.
Whats worse, is the installer SET PERMISSIONS to very toxic levels, so that I can't remove anything or change directory names. This is really bad.
I've been in the DOS prompt for about an hour trying to clean this thing up with Admin rights, but still, there are errors all over the place....
What the heck happened??? I never had problems with this software (been an everest/Aida user for years and years and years....)

Neither AIDA64 or the auto-updater portion of it would alter any directory permissions. So I'm not sure how things could go south on your system The only thing I can think of is some sort of 3rd party application, maybe an anti-virus software would block one or more steps of the AIDA64 automatic update process, and/or would quarantine either the old files or the new files, and so changed the directory permissions to block you out from the "malware" that it thinks AIDA64 is.
What you may try to do is start Windows in safe mode, and completely remove all AIDA64 related files and folders. Then install AIDA64 v2.50 from scratch, and hopefully it will then work properly.
