  1. 🙂 You're absolutely right, thank you. I shouldn't let my frustration with RS make me cranky. If you need the update, it's worth the hassle. I used SysInternals MoveFile utility to schedule the delete and rename to avoid having to boot into Safe Mode. I'm supremely lazy. 😉
  2. Yeah, I tried downloading it, too. The downloaded installer goes through the motions, starts Resilio Sync, and it's still the same old version (2.6.1). No error message displayed at all. Users don't have access to other users' Roaming folders, so I don't think that's it. I might be wrong, but I don't think users should be forced to do that. 🙂
  3. Click Check for Update. Authorize elevation to administrator privileges. (Why? Is Resilio Sync still being installed to Roaming? It should install into AppData\Local\ which does not require administrator privileges.) Failure. Once again, there's a sale going on, and I'd take advantage of it, but the upgrader is still broken, and I can't find any workarounds (or fixes) from Resilio.
  4. I used Microsoft's SysInternals Autoruns to disable the six entries for Resilio Sync extensions. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns I hope this solves it for you. I sympathize with how annoying it is. It caused me to miss my Console's Minimize button and hit Close by accident once--losing 12 hours of work.
  5. FYI, if you're experiencing mouse lag/stutter, it could be the Resilio Sync shell extensions constantly writing to the ShellExtIO.log file at a rate of 1 Kbps. I had to remove the shell extensions to make them stop.
  6. Even though Resilio Sync limits the file size to 100M, the extensions still write to it at a rate of 1 Kbps. This is excessively high. It causes my mouse to stutter/lag and consumes far too much drive bandwidth. Moreover, it's all for nothing since this log file isn't requested by Resilio's support. As far as I can tell, this file and its information is useless. https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/206664730-Collecting-debug-logs- Disabling the Resilio shell extensions is not a reasonable solution, not only because most users won't even discover the issue, but also because that eliminates features of Resilio. The correct solution is for Resilio's extensions to stop this unnecessary logging. Resilio Sync 2.6.1 (1319(
  7. I have that same issue on both the 32- and 64-bit versions of 2.6.1.
  8. Unfortunately, when 2.6.1 fails to install, it doesn't leave behind a Resilio Sync.exe.new as 2.6.0 did. (At least, it doesn't on my machine.) Still, perhaps deleting the executable will permit the standalone installer to run to completion.
  9. Yup, I use all the SysInternals as a developer. ? However, I'm not interested in doing their QA for them unless they show an interest in these bugs. I've got other things to do. ? (I'm not using Acronis.) I'll just have to keep running the free version of 2.5.12 until it's fixed.
  10. No Resilio stuff is running whenever I try to rename it. I added a "delete on restart" command in the Registry as an elevated user (using the Sysinternals MoveFiles utility, if you're familiar with it), and it still couldn't be deleted. I'm pretty sure Windows itself has it locked because it's in the Roaming directory, and Windows is doing whatever it needs to do to make it available for roaming. The "not a GUI process" makes it sounds like the issue is related to a service, but I've never installed Resilio Sync as a service. Oh, another piece of evidence that suggests it's service related is that the installer prompts me for administrator privileges. SInce it's installing into the AppData\Roaming\ directory, there's no reason to elevate.
  11. No, it's not installed as a service. I agree that it sounds as if it's related to that. Perhaps it's trying to install/uninstall the service even though it's not installed as such.
  12. 2.6.1 installed successfully on my Windows 7 32-bit machine, but still fails to install on my Windows 10 Home 64-bit rig. Unlike 2.6.0, it doesn't even leave behind a Resilio Sync.exe.new file.
  13. FYI, the latest release (2.6.1) still won't install--same issues as 2.6.0. (It installed fine on my 32-bit machine though.) (I reported this in the 2.6.1 thread as well. I just wanted to leave an update here for anyone monitoring.)
  14. Where does one download just the Resilio Sync.exe file from resilio.com? I see only the installer. 1. That's the issue though--the Resilio Sync.exe file is "locked by System." 2. I think you mean "regsvr32 -u" to unregister DLLs. Which DLLs need to be unregistered in order to prevent the system from locking Resilio Sync.exe? I don't believe that will work. (Also, a user needs to reboot after that because unregistering isn't enough to make the system unload a DLL; it just prevents the system from loading it again.) I'm using an admin console to schedule a move from Resilio Sync.exe.new to Resilio Sync.exe. We'll see if that's enough or if there are other files that weren't installed.
  15. Sorry, I was thinking of corporate machines which lock down administrator privileges. If you can elevate when you install Chrome, it prefers Program Files. Mine's there, too. Anyway, I'm pretty sure the problem is that Resilio Sync is incorrectly installed into the Roaming folder. That's for settings--not applications--that roam to different machines via some server. This is probably why the system has Resilio Sync.exe locked. Nothing should install in Roaming--just Local. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-vista/cc766489(v=ws.10) I wonder what the odds are that they'll fix this...
