    Hello members,


    After making and user a dim account, I got this message with Google Chromium nighty, in addition, i'm being asked for my password when I want to overwrite a file in the app folder. Do I have a permission problem? If so how do I go about fixing this. I have repaired persons already.

    I'm having this issue all the time - why?

    On a work PC, have the admin password to install applications. We just updated to Lion last week (all Mac workplace). Oddly, this didn't pop up when I updated Firefox post-update, but now it is popping up when I went to update Chrome and is popping up on other's computers.

    What's needed to resolve this issue? I specifically get -

    The operation can't be completed because some items had to be skipped. For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure "Locked" is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again.

    Unable to update Chrome and other apps

    Had check for update failure on Google Chrome, MBP, Lion 10.7.4. Tried to download new version and reinstall, but got same error: "The operation can’t be completed because some items had to be skipped. For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure “Locked” is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again." Could not reinstall Chrome, and old version refused to work as now some files were missing.

    Fortunately, had AppCleaner 2.1.0(234) installed (free from http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/25276/appcleaner or http://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/). Chose what remained of Chrome from pick-list in AppCleaner and let it search for relevant files, then deleted them (unchecked the .dmg files as I needed them to reinstall). Ran latest Chrome install again, and this time worked. Google was good enough to restore most of my settings (History, bookmarks, themes, etc.) as it maintains them under my Google Profile. Did lose SessionBuddy Sessions, and, it appears, most if not all cookies and cache; possibly other things as well. Had to copy the "1" document database from the deleted database reference in Trash (also made copy in case I need to retrieve other info/settings) and then just copied it into same folder/directory....sessions were restored. Reference to this procedure: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/sessionbuddy-discuss/wKHT-ugzzYA.

    Google should get their act together...nothing should be this hard on a Mac, much lsss just reinstalling an app.....


    Peace, Web+
