I just had to do a rebuild of my PC, (Windows 7 ultimate 64bit) and after re-installing Lightroom 5.2 it told me that there was an update available to version 5.6 which I downloaded. When I went to install it I received the following error when it was decompressing the files. It made it to about 48% and then threw the error in the attached picture. I have deleted the download and have downloaded it again and I still get the same error. Also, I have tried running it form two different hard drives on my system and there is plenty of room on both drives. One has 12GB of available space and the other has 108GB of available space. Also, just to see what would happen after it completed the above I tried to run the installer and it failed.
Can anyone offer any insight into what is causing this error and how to get around it so I can get the update to install?
The extraction is likely going to your C: drive. How much space does it have? A gig or two might be needed, I'd expect.
Thanks for the suggestion. Sorry it took so long to get back to this, I had other fires crop up after I posed this query. Unfortunately, no joy. I have like 14GB available on the C: drive I tried dearcing it on another drive, even on several other PC's and then tried to install it from a flash drive and it still fails with the exact same error. I have re-downloaded it like a dozen time on multiple computers and no joy. The only thing I haven't tried is installing it on a different computer, but that's because I don't have another machine available that will run it.
Any other ideas?
