In recent days I think I’m noticing a trend towards giving fewer reasons and focusing more on judgement and authority when it comes to user interaction messages. It’s strange to see this installer message following the same way:
Interestingly, while MSFT stepped up their game in treating their users in ways you shouldn’t even treat children, some websites have realized that “Something went wrong. You must reload the page” has this funny connotation and switched to “Something went wrong. But it’s not your fault.”
I wonder who was yelling at them to get them to change that language But I digress. The KiCad installer however keeps telling me I am not allowed to proceed, but without providing the necessary information to make an informed decision, as some installers do.
If possible it would be nice to be presented a list with running tasks that need to be terminated to avoid corruption and loss of data, as some installers do, and ideally be presented with a way to make that decision without hunting down the process again in the task manager.
Ultimately the case here was that of a pcbnew instance that was either left behind after closing or from a recent crash (no worries, all issues are reported).
Sorry for the rant
