I've just tried to update Concert to the latest release (v4.1.2), on a Windows 10 PC, and it fails with the following message:
Feature Transfer Error:
Error: Access is denied
I couldn't find any install logs, but may not have found the right place. Let me know where to look & I'll upload them.
Hi Joseph Kennion ,
Access Denied errors usually appear in the case where either the file is in use already (i.e. a previous version of Concert is installed and running) or the installer does not have permission to place files in the folder.
I would recommend trying a restart of your computer first (to ensure that nothing is currently using the files) and then right clicking on the installer and choosing to run as an administrator to ensure that you have permissions on the computer to install into the Program Data directory.
I'm afraid that neither a restart nor running as Administrator has solved this.
This is the 'second' run of the installer; the first run, as usual, uninstalls the previous version.
I have noted that the installer is showing "Installing C:\... \ETC_DMXGatewayControl.dll" behind the error dialogue.
Joseph Kennion ,
I'm sorry that didn't work to resolve it. Next, could we try the following:
It is the anti-virus (Bitdefender) that is the issue. I have found that it is quarantining a file during install. Unfortunately I'm not able to disable it on a work machine.
The message it gives is:
On-Access scanning has detected a threat. The file has been deleted. C:\ProgramData\ETC\Net3Concert\Devices\BB0F0D38-2FC5-48C1-9F0D-6E6E5480591B\ETC_ea58.rra is malware of type Gen:Variant.Bulz.450384
Hopefully that will give you an idea as to why Bitdefender is pulling this up as a false positive.
Just for completeness, steps 1-3, above, were done too. I've always been running the installer with admin privileges.
I have submitted a ticket to Bitdefender, but was unable to attach the file, so it might be worth you doing so at https://www.bitdefender.com/submit
The .rra extension is actually a part of the installer internally and not the final file that is placed on the machine. As they request a screenshot of the software producing the false positive in their submission process, I will PM you separately with the final file that you can submit (alternately you could link to the Concert installer since they don't allow submissions above 25MB).
Hi starksk ,
Bitdefender have confirmed the false positive, and issued an update. Concert now installs properly.
Thank you for your time.
