Netscape 4.5 Error 202

I Downloaded Netscape 4.5 to replace my 4.06 version of Netscape.  When I got to a point where I got a message saying that the program could affect files on my hard drive, I canceled the download installation.  After reading more about the upgrade I tried to download it again, and now at the end of downloading Netscape 4.5 to upgrade from the 4.06 version that I'm now using, it starts to install itself.  Shortly after a message comes up which says:
"59-(Java Script Application)
202 Error Access was not granted - Exiting"

This ends the installation of Netscape 4.5 and I'm left with the 4.06 version that I am now using.  
Thanks Jerry

I'm sure that there's some deep, complicated way to fix this.  However, I have little patience with this type of problem.  I suggest that you do what I do: just download the entire package and forget the update.  I'm sure that the update works and all that...  , but if you want to get to 4.5, then just delete 4.06 and install 4.5.  It's easy, it works.  It takes a little more time to get the kit, but that's about it.

(Be sure that when you delete 4.06, that you keep all of your data files.)

I have a whole lot of files that I want to keep, and I'm hoping that I can do the upgrade with out deleting Netscape 4.06.  If I can possibly get the download without deleting my other version I'd like to it that way.

"whole lot of files that I want to keep" - such as ?  Anything in the user directory will stay. And, you can download the 4.5 kit without deleting 4.06.  In fact, you use 4.06 to get the 4.5 kit. That's exactly what I did on one of my systems.  I was running 4.06, I downloaded the 4.5 full kit, then installed the 4.5 kit.

Are you asking if you can keep 4.5 and 4.06 running simultaneously ?  Or, are you just asking if you can use 4.06 until you download the copy of 4.5 ?

Are you using smartUpdate?  If not, use the method bjt3 suggests - download the "kit" which is a separate executable.  Once it is downloaded, double-click on the executable, and it will "upgrade" your 4.06 to 4.5, keeping all of your old files for use with 4.5.

Do you have netscape running while you are doing this install? It sounds like your system is running into a file that is in use and can't be replaced.

If the above doesn't seem to apply, try installing 4.5 into a different directory than the one 4.06 is in.  You can choose to install into a different directory, or you can rename the old one.  If the install goes well you can copy your date from the old installation to the new one.

The last time I looked at SmartUpdate, it ran as a Java package, so Navigator has to be running at the time.

I ran into something very like this the last time I tried to use SmartUpdate.  Something happened during the update and I got into a funny state.  After fooling around with it for much longer than it was worth, I just grabbed the complete kit and did the upgrade from that. That works, is relatively foolproof, and has an easy recovery if anything happens during the update.  That's why I recommended it here.  As a added bonus, if anything ever happens to your system, you have the kit to install from.

Just an afterthought to other great recommendations, did you check your download folder for all programs there to ascertain whether or not any components there are listed as damaged?  If so, delete them and reinstall them. Often I chase my tail (so to speak) only to find that one tiny component was at fault and needed replacement.
