Setup bug in WinXP (WFP related?)

Text of error:

An error occurred while trying to replace the existing file:
DeleteFile failed; code 5.
Access is denied.

Click Retry to try again, Ignore to skip this file (not recommended), or Abort to cancel installation."

Nothing but the installer was running. I hit retry, which didn't work, so I told it to ignore. It immediately gave the same error for comdlg32.ocx. Retrying that failed too, so I ignored it and setup proceeded with no more complaints. Do you need any more info on my system?

Oh yeah. Software runs without a hitch so far. What a JOY to see the words Fog Creek Software in my Programs menu! :-)

Thanks for letting us know!

This is harmless but we'll fix it for the final version.
