Can't upgrade Fetch to 5.3.1 (5 posts)

    I've downloaded the upgrade, and when I drag it to my Applications folder, I get the following:

    The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."

    I have administrator privileges, what's the deal?

    I just tried installing 5.5.2, same thing. Any help?

    Hi Betsie,

    Sometimes Mac OS X gets confused about privileges when you're replacing applications. Fortunately, the problem is easy to solve. Please do the following:

    * Make sure you've quit Fetch.
    * Open your Applications folder.
    * Drag the old version of Fetch to the Trash.
    * Copy the new Fetch to your Applications folder.

    This should fix the problem for either 5.3.1 or 5.5.2. Please let us know if you're still having problems.

    Thanks,
