Is there a way to catch the "unable to extract file..." if a previous version of the software is running? I would like to be able to close the previous version of the application and then continue with the install.

Any ideas on how to do this?

Any help greatly appreciated

what you can do is to check whether the setup is running in your application using a proper library or the Windows API (see ... is-running for an example).
