we cannot install the windows version here. The upgrade function gives an error, that there was a problem with downloading the new version and we should check bittorrent.com/sync for the latest version. We did, and we downloaded the version there. But after having run the installation wizard, nothing happens, and the version had not been installed.

uninstalling the old version and installing a new version did not help either. rebooting all the machines did not help either. Now we are stuck. 

Any help on this?

 

thanks

Bernhard

Bernhard,

 

What happens after you pass the installation wizard? It simply closes and thats it? Could you please check if any files are copied to program files or to %appdata%\bittorrent sync?

Check your antivirus logs. This happened to me.

Everything was working perfectly until auto-update to this version.

 

Now getting :

 

BitTorrent Sync has crashed. A crash dump has been saved as: ...

 

Try closing, disabling or uninstalling these program(s) to see if the problem goes away:

'NVIDIA Aplication filter' (nvlsp.dll)

Ok... I could solve it: the problem was that I didn't tick the 'Install Desktop Icon' checkbox. I could start it with simply clicking on the btsync.exe in %AppData%\BitTorrent Sync\ folder

@STUBR.BS, @wimbit,

 

There is known issue in installing / upgrading Sync in multi-user environment (i.e. when you do it under non-admin account). The fix is on the way, meanwhile you can indeed copy Sync's binary to "%AppData%\BitTorrent Sync\" as the binary itself is also installer.
