When AQTime thinks it’s running during install and aborts installation

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/29

I had this warning (which is actually an error: you cannot continue as pressing OK would get you the same warning over and over again) during AQTime installation a while ago:

Setup has detected AQtime running on your computer. You must close the application and press OK to continue.

Press Cancel to abort installation.
OK   Cancel

Back then:

  1. I was Administrator
  2. The Installer download was from
  3. The embedded version was 8.50.1720
  4. It did successfully extract the AQtime.msi before bailing out

The fix (from SmartBear support) was remarkably simple, so I was surprised I could not find it online:

If your downloaded, saved AQtime installation package is named AQtime.exe, rename it: (ex: AQtime850.exe and you should then be able to complete the installation process.

So basically renaming AQTime.exe into AQTime850.exe allowed it to install.
