How to update everything to the new version (BETA)?

How to update everything to the new version?
You can not replace the Everything.exe file - even if you have an account with administrator privileges.
C:\Program Files\Everything\
Access Denied.

Ps. You can not delete the Everything.exe file even if the application is closed, all the time some module is running in the background, which blocks this operation.

Code: Select all

Everything.exe (Service: Everything)
  Process ID: 2060
  Command Line: "C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe" -svc

Force to remove the file by special tools:
/!\Error: Cannot delete file\folder "C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe"!

(Guessing...

On some OS /Program Files/ is a "special" place, so "protected" from a "manual" addition/deletion - where at the same time an actual program installation is allowed. Perhaps because the install would go through a UAC prompt?

Anyhow, as I don't install, & even if were to install it likely would not be in /Program Files/, I'll let others finish...)

It does not matter what location of the file or installation, in my case the "Program Files".
And let it stay like this.
Autodeleted Everything.exe when next restarted my computer and put a new Everything.exe file without any problem
Now it is working.

The problem exists because Everything.Exe is running (e.g. as a task). Before replacing it, you must completely quit all, if need be, by task manager.
I have found that using just File/Exit (in the window or the task bar icon) may not close the system task (strangely, only sometimes).

Here is a detailed description:

With this description it was possible for me to install many [Beta-] versions without any problems.

Oh, so there isn't even a .exe installer for "beta".
I didn't even realize.

In that case, for me, it's easy, cause it's how I "install" any version.

I Quit Everything (Ctrl+Q).

Then, from a command prompt (in my Everything "install" directory):
C:\DEV\Locate\> Everything.exe -uninstall-service
Manually extract the new Everything.exe from .ZIP overwriting existing in my instalDir.
C:\DEV\Locate\> Everything.exe -install-service

Done.

I checked - The service is disabled and can not start the service (Access Denied).
but next run PC for some reason, I can delete and move the file again without receiving any information about Access Denied.
The application EVERYTHING , however, works even if the service is not running.

To run a nightly build:
  • Completely exit Everything (right click the Everything system tray icon and click Exit).
  • Open the Task Manager with Ctrl + Shift + ESC.
  • Click the Services tab.
  • Select Everything (if it exists), right click Everything and click Stop Service.
  • Overwrite your existing Everything.exe with one of the zipped Everything.exe here.
  • Open the Task Manager with Ctrl + Shift + ESC.
  • Click the Services tab.
  • Select Everything (if it exists), right click Everything and click Start Service.
  • Run Everything.exe.
