My system which has been running PatchMyPC for many months now has started getting an error since updating to 3.0.4.1. The detailed error message says "access to the path C:\PatchMyPCUpdates\PatchMyPCUpdater.exe is denied". I don't understand this as it has been working for months on the previous version of PatchMyPC. I checked effective permissions for C:\PatchMyPCUpdates\PatchMyPCUpdater.exe and my userid has Full Control.

System is Windows 8.1 x64 with all patches applied.

I'm attaching a snip of the error window that pops up to this post. I'll be happy to collect any additional documentation you might need.

Here are the details of the error:

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Can you check is PatchMyPCUpdater.exe is running in taskmgr and if so kill it?

Yes, PatchMyPCUpdater.exe was running. Killed it and now PatchMyPC runs correctly.

Mahalo! (Thank you)
