Greetings,

I got a notice a new version of iStats was available, so I downloaded it and attempted to install it. At first it would say it was unable to remove the old version, so I tried to uninstall from the preferences pane and it would not work so I ended up manually deleting it out of the prefs directory in the library -- that did the trick.

Now when I try to install the new version it aborts, saying "Unable to copy."

What can I do?

Thanks,
Ray

Great to hear gumby08 and Jun, that you had no problems installing. Maybe you had trouble reading the title of the thread...

Solari, you could always try a safe boot (hold down shift when booting and don't let go until the login screen loads) to see if that helps.

It works for me in a fresh user account, but not in my usual account!

I got it to work! I had to remove the 'iStat Menus' folder from Users>(username)>Library>Application Support manually, then it installed fine.
