    Getting an error updating from the previous version 2019.1.1 I believe …

    Updating IntelliJ IDEA (build 191.6707.61) to IntelliJ IDEA (build 191.7141.44) …

    Got a POPUP “Some conflicts were found in the installation area”.
    bin/breakgen64.dll Action: Update, Problem: Access denied, Solution IGNORE.

    Not sure if I should just click on the “Proceed” to continue.
    Help gratefully appreciated. Thanks.

      Could you please clarify if jbr folder exists in root installation folder?

      • Ivan says:

        May 16, 2019

        Sorry, I didn’t have notifications enabled so I didn’t see your reply. This is what my installation folder looks like:

        I am still unable to update from within IDEA.

        • Vladimir says:

          May 30, 2019

          As I see you most probably deleted jbr folder. I can suggest you to reinstall the product now.

    Gradle issue “IDEA-210487” is listed twice in the first bullet point. Did you mean to include a different issue besides that and “IDEA-178417”?
