Google AdWords Editor Setup Error writing to file msvcp90.dll

Upgrading to latest AdWords Editor, I get this error, what should I do, please?

"Google AdWords Editor Setup
Error writing to file: C:\Users\AppData\Local\Google\Google AdWords Editor\components\msvcp90.dll.
Verify that you have access to that directory."


I do have access to that directory, though the components subfolder did not exist.  So I created it.  It didn't help at all.

Any ideas, please?


Thanks and RICKgards

Hi Rick


Thanks for posting, that looks like quite a tricky one. I've asked our team to look into this for you and they should be in contact in the coming days.
