Hi.
For a week or so, when I first launch bbo version 5.2, each day, a window pops up and propose a new release which I accept.
Then the bboE546.exe program starts.
And a few second later, a new pop up states:
quote
bboA17.exe
Setup can not create the following folder:
\robots\gib
unquote

So my question: what must I do to overtake this difficulty?

My PC runs under Windows seven 64 bits.

I have deleted the existing directory \robots\gib before the launch of the update next day, but this did not change anything.
So I have created then again, manually, as they were before the try.

Many thanks in advance for your help

Are you running from an admin account?

I have the same problem.

I run BBO from a Stick drive ( not the usual C drive). Windows XP Pro. Not sure how to resolve this.

Try http://dev.bridgebas...1/bbo_setup.exe

This is a link to a fresh download of the new version, so it shouldn't need to auto-update after it's installed.

This link is just for forum readers for now. When we're sure it's OK we'll put it on the main download site.

blbente, do you have a question? All you did was quote fophie's original message, you didn't add anything of your own.
