JabRef bibliography manager was recently updated (March 6, 2020) to version 5.0. For windows system (WIN10 ver. 1909), the update installer file this time was given as
JabRef-5.0.msi rather than the usual
JabRef_windows-x64_4_3_1.exe used in previous updates.
When trying to install the new update file
JabRef-5.0.msi, the following error message is displayed
There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.
When clicking OK and Next, the setup is finished without installing anything.
The following solutions have been tried:
- Empty internet temporary folder
- Update Java to the recent version (jre-8u241-windows-x64)
None of them worked.
Is there any idea what's wrong?
