During an upgrade of KOFF, you may experience a
firebird.msg error during the update/setup process.
Error 1310. Error writing to file: C:\Program Files(x86)\Kerio\Outlook Connector (Offline Edition)\firebird\firebird.msg. Verify that you have access to that directory.
The behavior has also been encountered when running the KOFF setup/upgrade as administrator.
The above behavior was identified as stemming from the Koffbackend.exe process running, while the setup is running.
The KOFF setup tries to kill/stop the Koffbackend.exe process, however, if the process does not terminate after 1 minute, this error can be encountered.
The workaround is to manually kill the Koffbackend.exe process from the Windows Task Manager and then clicking Retry.
Updating the Kerio Connect Outlook Connector (KOFF) can sometimes result in
firebird.msg errors. These can be resolved by following the steps outlined above, which entail killing the KoffBackend process.
What is Windows installer error 1310?
Windows Installer Error 1310 occurs when the Windows Installer is unable to write to a file during the installation process. This can occur because of various reasons, including the inability of the installer to access a file already used by another process.
What should I do if I encounter a firebird.msg error during the update?
Check the Windows Task Manager and kill the KoffBackend.exe process. Also make sure that the proper Antivirus Exclusions for Kerio Connect are configured, as 3rd party AV software may lock the file for writing.
