Asking for Thunderbird to be closed during Win install

Post by stevejc » Thu Oct 26, 2017 11:10 pm

I ran the 2018 64 bit Windows installer and I selected the custom installation option. I deselected Thunderbird and the Softmaker Add ins from the list and continued. I then got a message telling me to close Thunderbird. I cancelled this and the installer aborted.
I then repeated the install and closed Thunderbird when requested and the installer worked correctly. I was worried that my up to date version of Thunderbird would be modified in some way but it seems to be unchanged!
I suggest that if the Thunderbird options in Custom install are unselected then the installer should run without involving Thunderbird in any way and certainly not produce this worrying message.

The problem has been solved and will no longer occur in the next serve pack.
