I performed the update as I normally do. However, I received a notice about Notepad++ running and was using files that were being updated by the install. So I closed Notepad++. I then got an error about Everything and was offered the Cancel/Ignore/Retry buttons. Retry did nothing but bring the same dialog up.

Normally, the install automatically terminates Everything, does the update, then restarts Everything. I had to manually terminate Everything this time. And then I got his error:

And the install terminated early. I attached the install log.

I saw exactly the same thing Scott, and the manual download worked for me too, although there was no indication that it had forgotten the installation directory (I use the default thought, if you install elsewhere that might explain it).

21.0.38 New installer version
I wonder if it's a minor issue with the new installer?

Not reproducible here. The error log shows the failure inside Windows Installer, not in the TCMD script or the Advanced Installer wrapper.

What version of Windows are you running?

What version of TCMD were you upgrading from?

Did you have Everything installed as a service previously?

I saw the problem on Windows 10 creators update with the latest patches, previous TCMD was v21 b37, Everything installed as a service.
