WL 6.0.5 Installation Failure
« on: July 08, 2019, 12:56:19 PM »
Hey guys, tried to install the update a handful of time with no success. Any ideas?
We've tried installing - removing - repairing both with and without the logger being connected.

Looks like you are attempting to install without first unzipping the file. I got that from seeing your temp folder as the installation source.

Right click and unzip. Then try and install.

Looks like you are running Windows 7 so the following does not apply to you. But in Windows 10 before unzipping a file one must right click and click the unblock box and then click OK. Then you can right click and unzip. Otherwise you end up with unzipped files that are all blocked from the OS. It would be more tedious then to unblock each individual unzipped file. Obviously this is a tip that must be used carefully as when you unblock you are basically saying that you trust the source. This is a protection mechanism found in Windows 10. Just posting this here for completeness and for anyone else with Windows 10 that may stumble on this thread.

Thanks for the extra detail.

The file downloaded from the weatherlink is named WL605UPGRADE.exe and so who'd have thought it's a zipped file? But anyway, there is a setup file in there and it should work (have to wait for tomorrow for IT to allow me admin rights to install it .-.)
