Latest beta total failure to install, deleted itself

Recommended Posts

So, I let LB install the latest beta version and it literally deleted both executables for LB and they no longer exist in the launchbox directory. It also gave errors while installing mentioning renaming. I assume this was meant to switch LB and LBN around to make the next interface the new default? Well, it didn't like that. :P

Didn't happened to me. Launchbox Next is still alongside regular LB, it hasn't been replaced yet.

What antivirus are you using? Maybe that's what deleted the executables.

Definitely sounds like an overzealous antivirus. Hard to know without seeing it but I believe I've heard of that exact scenario several times before.

That's interesting since I only have Windows defender on. I wouldn't expect that to be overzealous. Is there anything else I should look into here? I fixed it by just installing the latest beta again right into the same folder and all was well so it's not the end of the world or anything but it is an odd one.

The only time I've heard of that happening is with antivirus but at the same time I've never heard of Defender flagging LB before either. I'd just chalk it up to some weirdness and hopefully it won't happen again.
