First, I apologize if this has been asked elsewhere (and I feel that it must have been) - I searched all over and couldn't find it. This annoying issue deals with updating applications. Under OS X 10.6 and earlier, I would be prompted for an administrator password (my normal account is a "standard" account), then I would be asked what to do about the fact that a file with the same name already existed, and that would be it. As far as I can remember, upgrading to OS X 10.7 about a year ago changed that. The sequence of events is about the same, but the operation fails with a message about permissions. The file to be overwritten in the Applications folder is essentially deleted (Finder reports that it is zero bytes, and it has the white cross-out symbol over it), but I have to manually remove it. Once I do so, I can go ahead and move the updated version in. Basically, I now have to type in my administrator username and password twice to install a program that has an older version in my Applications. The behavior is the same on my wife's computer; the only thing in common between our installs is that we both upgraded from OS X 10.6. It's not a critical issue, but any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
