Installing Apps on Vista - Help





IllusionSoftware
I'm having some trouble installing apps on Vista. I install the application and it succeeds but when I try to delete the installer I get a message box saying

The action can not be completed because the file is open in another program.

I don't know what to do. I made sure that the installer is not running by checking the Task Manager.

The only way I can delete is if I restart/log-out of the computer and log back in. I don't want to do that.

If anyone can help, that would be great.

Some times the program gets stuck in the Task Manager, so you have to restart, just part of life with Vista

But if the program gets stuck, can't I see it in the Task Manager?

the program may already be closed but there may be other shared files still open or in use by the computer which causes the error message you are receiving. So one shorter way to overcome that may be to log off and login again instead of having to restart your computer.
