Scrivener 1.0 Install Problem

I’ve never had a problem installing any of the beta versions, so I was surprised when I did after purchasing version 1.

Here’s what I did:

  1. Uninstalled the last beta version of Scrivener for Windows
  2. Downloaded the scrivener-installer.exe file after purchasing a version 1 license
  3. Clicked on the exe to install. When the installation was almost done, I got the following error message:

Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete correctly. Error running c:\PROGRA~1\SCRIVE~1/resources/vcpp runtime/vcredist_x86.exe/q:
Program ended with an error exit code

  1. I click on the error message ok button and the installation “finished” but I am sure that all is not well.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

The installation is actually probably fine; this is an error from running the MS check and installer for the runtime files, but you’ve obviously got them installed since you’ve been running previous betas, so it’s safe to ignore this and click through the message. Lee’s updating the installer to strip this out since it’s causing a problem, but you should be set to just get up and working now.
