OK, let's go through this step by step.
The installation directory is created (C:\Temp\freenet-install\), and
there's two files inside: freenet.exe (56kB) and NodeConfig.exe
(66kB). No signs of readme, freenet-ext.jar (but I still have it in my
install dir though), freenet-latest.jar or freenet.jar, and
Now about permissions: I don't know why, but parent dir (C:\Temp\)
always have read-only flag grayed out (showing that some files
inside are read-only, but that's not true - all are writeable...), but
sub-dir is ok, read-only flag is not checked. The other thing is
that whole drive C: is ntfs-compressed, including C:\Temp\ :) But,
unfortunately, removing compression doesn't change the situation :(
Manually creating dir doesn't helps too. And, of course, I'm
installing it from local drive.
About running Freenet from command line - I'll check it and reply
Thanks, anyway :)
I have a strange error during install process: after getting all
necessary files from hdd/inet, FreeNet install program shows:
Unable to write a file to disk. Check that the disk is not full, or
write-protected, and that you have rights to install files. The
installer will now exit.
And, surely, it aborts setup process and exits :(
I have almost 2GB free on my disk, it's not write-protected (even
more, I can see all non-zero necessary files in the temporary
folder!), and have all necessary rights (admin under WinXP). What's
Hmm, that's very strange. I haven't seen this reported before.
This error comes from the installer .NSI script. The only things which should
cause it are if the installer can't create the installation directory, or if
fails to copy one of the needed files (README, NodeConfig.exe,freenet-ext.jar,
freenet-latest.jar or freenet.jar, Uninstall.exe) into it.
Random ideas : check for any weird ACL's / permissions on the install dir,
you can manually create the dir and put stuff in it, if you're trying to
from an SMB share or suchlike do it from a local disk instead.
It's possible to kludge around this error (copy all the temporary files
manually to your desired install location, run NodeConfig.exe to generate a
config, run freenet from the command line) but this is less than convenient
you would lose nice windows functionality like the system tray bunny :/
