When I tried to open Anki this morning, I was prompted to update the software.
I downloaded the latest version. When I started to run the installation, it prompted me to uninstall the old version, so I did that first. Then I tried to run the installation program again.
I got the error message: “Error opening file for writing anki-console.bat”
I tried rebooting my computer and get the same message. (This was a suggestion for the error on a different forum post and seemingly helped the user because they didn’t reply.)
I searched these forums for solutions and have:
*verified that I have Administrator privileges and I do (It’s a personal laptop)
*Tried changing the folder where it’s saved (My original location was in the “App Data” folder. Another user was trying to download into a different folder and was getting this error. That user was able to fix after selecting the App Data folder. So I tried a few different folders, but that didn’t work. And I went back to the App Data folder and it still didn’t work.
