I had Anki Desktop version 2.1.15, and when I opened it today it suggested an upgrade to version 2.1.34. When I followed the link it took me to Anki’s home page. I clicked the download button, and I read that for versions newer than 2.1.6 I don’t need to uninstall Anki before I install new one.
And so I downloaded the installer for the standard version 2.1.34, and started the installation. However, about 30 seconds into the installation, an error code came up, and I had to cancel the installation.
I thought that maybe not uninstalling Anki first was the problem, so I tried to uninstall the old Anki but a message came up saying it may have already been uninstalled.
The error code that appears during installation is as follows:
Error opening file for writing:
Click Retry to try again, or Cancel to stop the installation.
Retry doesn’t work.
I would really appreciate it if someone could help me find a solution for this.
