Default error installing 5.982 64 Bit

Running Windows 7
Reaper 5.981 64 Bit

When I try to install the latest update, I get the following message:

Error opening file for writing
C:\Program Files\REAPER(x64)\reaper.exe

Click Aport to stop the installation
Retry to try again, or
Ignore to skip this file

Never had anything like this before when installing updates. Please advise! Thanks!

This would happen if you have Reaper running, maybe crashed but still not fully stopped, while trying to install. Have you rebooted?

you were right! Checked my task manager and there were a bunch of instances of reaper.exe open, even though the program appeared to be closed. But duh on my part for not restarting my computer first. Thanks!

You're welcome.
I'm glad we got that sorted out
Have a nice day.
