Loader update V4.6.9 23/01/2018 at 20:02 #105397

In "check for updates" there is a new Loader, License Manager (unlock all), and Refresher. The Refresher fixes the erroneous report of "failed to rename..." BUT that won't disappear until the next time the Refresher is updated. It should work though - everything should be at V4.6.9 after updating.

I'm not sure if there was anything strange about my setup, but for me SimSigRefresherC.exe (which I think was still stuck at 4.6.3 in case there were any intermediate Updater updates) failed to update itself, presumably because it attempted to overwrite its own file while it was actually still running.

What worked in the end was going into the Simsig installation directory and manually running SimSigRefresher.exe, which had already been updated itself and could then in turn update SimSigRefresherC.exe.

Two million people attempt to use Birmingham's magnificent rail network every year, with just over a million of them managing to get further than Smethwick.

You need to run SimSigRefresher.exe with admin privileges.

Running as admin allowed a successful update with no "failed to rename" errors.

I don't know why it's failing for a small number of people but working fine for most others. I've updated the installer to V4.6.9 which will get around the issue for the moment while I work out what is going wrong.

In my case, I got "failed to rename" warnings for two files, but the update completed successfully anyway. I didn't even need to run as admin.

In case it's relevant, I'm running Win7 x64 with UAC turned off.

This has been brought up in this thread already. Which Sim(s) are you trying to open save games in? And what is the language that your windows is operating in?

I am also getting an issue with SimSigRefresherC.exe which comes up with "Failed to rename" and "Failed to copy" responses. Other than that the update went fine.

Dave is this you updating from 4.6.9 to 4.6.11?
I got those errors when I updated to 4.6.9, but then did a reinstall from the website from Geoff's link in an earlier post, then had no issues going up to 4.6.11 just now
