I have Retrobatch 1.3. When I select “Check for Updates” I get an error:
Update error! Retrobatch can’t be updated, because it was opened from a read-only or a temporary location. Use Finder to copy Retrobatch to the Applications folder, relaunch it from there, and try again.
Only it is in the Applications folder; specifically, the all-users Applications folder. The Retrobatch app itself is set to be read-write by all user classes. The Applications folder itself is read-write by user and group, but is read-only for everyone else, and I can’t change it, even via
Unable to change file mode on Applications: Operation not permitted.)
Other applications in the same Applications folder don’t have a problem updating; for example, I just now updated Screenflick, which has even fewer write permissions than Retrobatch does.
What, if anything, can I do to fix this? Or should I just download the latest manually and hope copying it over top of 1.3 doesn’t mangle my registration info?
