[ALLY] Bug in Auto Install (The Update Icon)

From: carl::pacific::net at: 1-Oct-2000 16:40

When I got home and installed the new REBOL/View, I noticed a minor bug in the automatic installation process. If you click on the UPDATE icon, a new copy of REBOL is downloaded (works only for Windows currently) and REBOL is restarted running the new version. So far so good. But, when you are asked to install the new version, REBOL will copy the .exe file... but that's the same file that you are running, so it cannot do it. This situation needs to be detected during the install, but is not. Here's how to fix the problem (for now). Go to the directory where the View exe is found and rename it to rebol2 or something. Run that copy and the install should succeed in making its copy to rebol.exe. Sorry about that. This is why we have betas. -Carl
