Reflecter won't upgrade on 6.8 :-(

Postby DJ Doena » Mon Jun 20, 2011 1:23 pm

When I open my version 6.7.03 and select "check for updates" then it downloads an update but can't install it afterwards because "...\\Reflector.exe is in use by another process.

And I don't see an option to upgrade without having Reflector running.

Hi there,

It sounds like you have the Visual Studio add-in installed and have Visual Studio running when you try to update. I'd recommend you uninstall the add-in before updating anyway or you'll get an error message next time you start Visual Studio.

To successfully update, I'd recommend the following steps:

- Close all Visual Studio instances, and any Reflector instances you have running.
- Start up .NET Reflector 6.7
- Click the Tools > Integration Options menu item, and uninstall the add-in from any versions of Visual Studio you have installed.
- Now click Help > Check for Updates

You should then be able to successfully go through the update process.

If you run into any more problems, please give me a shout.
