Hi! I’m Katie. I am a high school science teacher, and I am very interested in 2D animation software, as I would like to create helpful science animations for my students. Synfig looks like an excellent program. Unfortunately, when I downloaded the program for Windows, it does not install.
It allows me to click “run,” “next,” “I agree,” and “next” after choosing components, but when I try to click “install,” it reads:
But the only thing it lets me do is “abort.”
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
Well the thing is that it never installed in the first place, so I can’t uninstall it. It was 64.0.exe. I’m not sure what went wrong, but I just installed the 63.5.exe and it installed and opened. Thanks!
Possibly the file was corrupted when downloaded.
I had the same problem when I tried to install the latest (64.1?) version in the recommended folder yesterday. I’m using Windows 7 (64 bit).
When i installed it somewhere else it worked (no error messages), but I couldn’t figure out how to start the program. There was no exe file apart from uninstall and something called Python.
I installed the 63 version and it seems to work now, at least I can get it to open. Just wanted to let you know he/she is not the only one with this problem.
Hello all, by the way.
Hello wanda and welcome here,
When you said same problem installing 0.64.1 , you mean exaclty the same problem ?
Error opening file for writing:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Synfig\bin\libatk-1.0-0.dll
Because in that case, i think it could be useful to fill a bug report (and also have an answer from katie to know if she solve her problem)
