    Well - in case I hadn't read it earlier (which I did) thankfully you posted it in capital letters 20+ times. I already tried that and it didn't work. This is what I have done so far to try to get it to work.

    1) I modified the permissions to all groups (using the steps outlined in a prior post) to allow updating to all files within the Program Files/ World of Warcraft directory
    2) When I was still getting the same error, I moved wow to another directory (not in Program files) - as was suggested in a prior post and modified the permissions to the new folder such that all groups had access in the new folder to modify all files
    3) When that didn't work, I turned off UAC thinking perhaps that would help. It didn't.

    I was still getting the same error.

    I looked for another option of installer and found something else listing Java as a dependency (having a completely new software install, I did not have Java installed). After installing Java the regular WoW Ace Updater works. Does the WoW Ace Updater use Java? Nothing else changed between when the program didn't work and when it did.

    I've even disabled user accounts in Vista - such that folders no longer require security permissions. Still not working. Same message. Error During Update.

    Hmm - I'll try that. I'm also having this issue. I thought I had properly modified the security settings already. I will make sure I have by using those steps.

    Thanks.

    posted a message on Error During Update
    I am experiencing the same issue. I've installed WAU on a new computer I built myself over the weekend. Currently, the computer has a 64-bit Windows Vista installed, WoW, Vent, Adobe Acrobat, Firefox, and Flash, Kaspersky Internet Security 7, WAU and nothing else.

    I open WAU, select one addon to be updated (I copied my Interface folder from my old computer) and choose update marked addon. It begins to run and then says "Error During Update". I tried adjusting the World of Warcraft folder to allow everyone full control over the folder. There are not other users for this PC (except my mother if she's vising, and she knows more about computers than I do), so this is a security feature in Vista I'm not fond of. Anyone have other suggestions for how to resolve this "Error during update" issue?
