Did anyone else encounter problems when trying to install the Library Loader?
The following link supposedly descibes how to install the Library Loader:-
However the instructions given don't work.
'Right click and run the .msi file as an administrator'.
There are two problems with this:-
Firstly after you unzip the downloaded file you end up with a file named LibraryLoaderSetup2v47.msi.
Despite the '.msi' extension, this is not really an msi file - it's just a folder. You can't 'run it' as the instructions suggest. You have to open the folder and navigate to another file with the same name inside another folder named 'Library Folder'. Confusing or what?
Secondly under Windows 10 you cannot right click on an msi file and 'run as administrator'.
To get that to work you have to either run a command from a command window (as administrator) or make changes the registry to allow 'right click, run as administrator' to work for msi files as described here:-
Note also that the info given in the link above is not quite right.
"C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe /i \"%1\" %*"
The double quotes surrounding %1 should not be escaped with a backslash. It should be:-
"C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe /i "%1" %*"
IMHO the installation process (or at least the instructions) needs to be improved.
