During program upgrade the message about HINSTD.DLL is displayed


During upgrade procedure of NiceLabel software that is copy protected with a hardware key (dongle) the following error message might by displayed:

Error creating temporary file C:\~epninst~HINSTD.DLL

The error occurs only if you are upgrading to the new version of NiceLabel software immediately after installation of the previous version. The error is caused by INSTALL utility not properly freeing connection to the library files. New installation therefore cannot update them. The error is not likely to appear as upgrade procedure is usually not performed directly after main installation.


Reboot the computer. This action will free connections to the files. Then start the upgrade procedure again. This time it will complete successfully.
