Tried to install the latest beta PB5516 today.

I get the following error message (also screen capture)
"C:\Program Files\PersonalBrain\lib\comfyj.jar Could not create this file. Shall I try again.

If I selected "yes" same message appears.

Re-boot system - Same message
Run install as Administrator - Same message.
Rename the current comfyj.jar - Same message.

If I selected "no" I get a "" message" (see screen capture)

Hi Pat,

Sounds like there was a conflict with the installer. Please download the zip archive version which can be found on the Beta downloads page. Look for the small print "Archive format without installer"
The instructions for installing using the zip archive are:
   1. Download the "Archive format without an installer" from the link on the right side of the Beta downloads page.
   2. The zip file does not include an installer, so please follow the instructions to manually install.
   3. Extract the contents of the zip file. This should yield a folder called "PersonalBrain".
   4. Move this folder into your "C:\Program Files" folder.
   5. Right click on the file PersonalBrain.exe and select "Create Shortcut"
   6. Move the created shortcut onto your desktop.
   7. Drag the shortcut to the Start button to add a copy of it there also.
   8. To launch PersonalBrain, use the shortcut you have just created.

Best regards,
Thanks Moe, that worked!
