Special note: Vopt was a commercial program sold by Golden Bow Systems. Howard Barry Emerson, the author of Vopt, recently passed away and dictated Vopt to be made free after his death. Take a moment to thank the man for his generosity.Feb 10, 2017 at 2:35 am #7110591

I knew Barry and Elizabeth his Lady – for at least 20 years. Marvelous fellow, marvelous couple, marvelous creator of VOPT the best of the best Defragmenter in the world.
With Wife Cathy, we often visited San Diego and spent wonderful times with both of them.
And we’re VERY SAD that Barry is Gone. Great man, Great Programmer, Great FRIEND.

As some other peoples, I have the message:
The program Vopt.exe must be closed before continuing.
Please close the program and click Retry to continue.May 1, 2017 at 4:00 pm #7794916
Vopt wont start. After the download the program keeps saying to close the exe. That’s as far as I got. well, thought it might have worked out.Not sure if theres a trick to installing and starting this program because I couldn’t get it to work.May 11, 2017 at 8:07 pm #7866665
If you are getting the “The program Vopt.exe must be closed before continuing. Please close the program and click Retry to continue” error. Cancel the install, start the program again saving the install vopt.exe program. Cancel again when you get the same error. Rename the VOPT’s install program vopt.exe to vopt9.exe and run again. The program is checking if vopt.exe is running and the install program is also named vopt.exe. Renaming the vopt.exe install program should fix this problem.May 21, 2017 at 8:55 am #7961123
[@wentry] Thank you! Your directions worked like a charm!May 25, 2017 at 3:37 am #8016522
Hello there just rename the vopt.exe file to setup.exe and it should work :)Sep 12, 2017 at 5:40 pm #8908564
toda esta mierda es una burla.Oct 5, 2017 at 11:13 am #9082171
I have same error when installing:
The program Vopt.exe must be closed before continuing. Please close the program and click Retry to continue.
but the solution is simple, save installer to disk and rename it to somethning different than “Vopt.exe” (e.g. “Vopt-installer.exe”), because when it is named “Vopt.exe” installer detects running proces “Vopt.exe” and thinks that you have Vopt already installed and running.Dec 15, 2017 at 2:16 pm #9746606
What a big hassle!!! It’s usually GiveAwayOFTheDay that has things that don’t work. I expect better from this site. Disappointing.Feb 10, 2018 at 6:31 pm #10369817
Программы очень хорошие.Спасибо .Feb 13, 2018 at 3:31 am #10393417
When I try to install this program it tells me to stop vogt.exe and when I do so the installer also stops and I’m back where I started. i.e. impossible to install.Jun 17, 2018 at 8:22 am #11474859
Won’t install with W10 continually stops and says program must be closed to continue then when you close it it blows off the installation. Even for free it’s not worth wasting the time.
