#10368 new defect

WIN32: WinSparkle doesn't terminate ScummVM.exe before launching the installer

Reported by: rootfather Owned by:

I updated from to 2.0.0 using the WinSparkle updater.

I noticed that after downloading the updated installer and clicking the final "Install Update" button, WinSparkle launches the new installer without terminating the ScummVM process before. This will cause the Inno installer dropping an error message and a request to close the application. While this can be done in the Inno installer itself, this might be just a bit confusing to the end user and not a real problem.

Maybe the WinSparkle implementation can be tweaked to close ScummVM.exe before launching the Inno installer instead of relying on the Inno feature that detects files that are in use.
