As was the case with an early version, it cannot be installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Jthink\SongKong (default) again. ("This directory cannot be written (...). Windows 8 64bit OS.

To confirm this installing the 32bit or 64bit version of Jaikoz ?
As you are installing onto 64bit windows can you try installing the other version?
(This release was built from a new release, I wonder if previously I was using a modified version of Izpack, that I havent used here)

64bit version (songkong-windows64) did not work - the 32 bit version did install correctly. I was installing the lastest version of the 64 bit version as awell, 15.7, 17:11 timestamp. This was an update from 1.4.0 (the 64 bit version that is, the 32 was installed and created the folder for the first time.)

Im unable to reproduce this problem, I tried uninstalling and installing both again on Windws 8 64bit, and had no problems.

What is curious is you say is 64bit cannot be installed in


C:\Program Files (x86)\Jthink\SongKong (default) again
 


but that is only the 32bit default, the 64bit default is

Code:
 C:\Program Files\Jthink\SongKong
 


So where did the 64bit version display as the default ?

Very strange! I tried it again, and now it worked. Made no sense. As you pointed out, I pasted the info from the install dialog with the correct path, tried it again now, and it did install correctly in the 64bit program folder ( C:\Program Files\Jthink\SongKong) - and there is no chance I could have had two different folders with the same info. Either way - its installing fine now, the 64 bit version that is. I dont know what to say
