    When trying to install the upgrade I get the following error:

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

    What is wrong?

    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.

    You should be all set. Please let us know if you're still having problems.
