    Just downloaded it and tried to install. I get the following:
    ========================================
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\MSINET.OCX

    An error occurred while trying to replace the existing file:
    DeleteFile failed; code 5.
    Access is denied.
    ========================================
    o_O
    Any ideas on how to solve this error code 5?

    Thanks,

    Hi middle_link,

    If access is denied trying to delete a file the most likely cause is because that file is in use by another program. You should try to close as many applications as possible when try to do this install to try to avoid the conflict. Or, reboot your system into Safe Mode and try installing from there.

    The following thread lists this error and Javacool's recommendation regarding how to work around it.

    I hope this helps,
