Running the Splash ID 188.8.131.520 installer on Windows 7 crashes with "error opening file for writing: c:\Program Files (x86)\SplashData\SplashID Safe\SplashId Safe.exe"
Also, it's overwriting the current Splash ID 7 install, which is a bad idea for such a critical app; I want to be able to revert to 7 if 8 doesn't work for some reason.
I tried changing the install directory to "splashid safe 8"; that got the same error.
Thanks for contacting us. That could happen if the version 7 app is running.
If you want to preserve version 7, just rename:
c:\Program Files (x86)\SplashData\SplashID Safe\
c:\Program Files (x86)\SplashData\SplashID 7\
Then run the SplashID 8 installer.
