Windows x64 Installer Broken - Access to the path is denied.
Receive the following error message when trying to install the Windows x64 installer:
Access to the path is denied.
running in C:\Program Files\Quassel IRC.
Select "Yes" to kill the process(es), "No" to retry or "Cancel" to quit.
I have even tried pre-creating the folder before running the installer, as well as running the installer as Administrator (even though it does properly prompt for UAC when run)
See attached screenshot.

- Version changed from 0.12.4 to 0.13.0
Would you retry with the installers available today?
There was a bug in the packaging that got fixed on Nov. 21st, 2018, which should have been included in updated Quassel installers (though the file modification dates seem the same, unsure). Relevant commit: https://github.com/KDE/craft/commit/e9e604fed2c86dbacdf6c41ac6eb37f060948d12
If this isn't fixed in 0.13.0, please try a random recent build from https://ci.appveyor.com/project/Quassel/quassel/history , just to see if the installer works. If it works, great, this will be fixed in the 0.13.1 release coming soon™ (next weeks, probably). If not, we need to look into this!
The Quassel installer didn't correctly handle the case where Quassel had never been installed. The above linked commit fixes this by not erroring out if the Quassel directory doesn't exist.
#3 Updated by phuzion over 2 years ago
- Status changed from New to Closed
- Version changed from 0.13.0 to 0.13.1
I just tested this with the 0.13.1 installer onto a fresh Windows 10 20H2 machine with no C:\Program Files\Quassel directory and did not experience this issue.
Closing for now. If you continue to have this issue, please reopen this bug. Thanks for the report!
