#266 closed bug (fixed)

change the installer to copy files/xop/etc rather than move

Reported by: srkline Owned by: srkline

currently, if the installer is run once, the files are moved to the necessary places, and it can't be re-run. Frustrating for users. cold we switch the installer to copy the files instead? Was there a reason that I set it up to move rather than copy?

done, and seems to work well. Now the installer can be re-run multiple times (why? who knows?). With each run, the "old" stuff is moved out, and tagged with a date stamp, so there are never any overwrite issues.

Oddly - the NCNR_Package_Loader that is installed in the Igor Procedures (in the Special User folder) gets opened even if it's moved. so to prevent compile failing, it must be closed at experiment startup, when askUserToKillHelp() runs.
