Problems upgrading Sparkle

I must be missing something basic.
When I open Sparkle, I get the message: a read-only or a temporary location. Use Finder to copy Sparkle to the Applications folder, relaunch it from there, and try again.

I’m opening the file from the Applications folder. I don’t know why Sparkle thinks this is a read-only or temporary location. Has anyone else run into this?


Some background on that in this post:

If Sparkle is in the Applications folder and it’s still giving that error, it is a Finder bug.

I can suggest trying to delete Sparkle, download it again from our site then move it from Downloads to Applications. Maybe that appeases the Finder.

I’ve re-downloaded it, and I’m not getting that message any longer.
