Access denied error


When I start git-credential-winstore.exe just as it is, I get the question whether to install it or not. So I choose Yes. And then:
Unhandled Exception: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Users\my-username\AppData\Roaming\GitCredStore\git-credential-winstore.exe' is denied.
   at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
   at System.IO.FileInfo.Delete()
   at Git.Credential.WinStore.Program.InstallTheApp(String pathToGit, Boolean silent)
   at Git.Credential.WinStore.Program.Main(String[] args)
And that's it.

This is on Windows 7 x64, Git 2.4.4.

I don't know why it's in my user profile, but it was always there. Perhaps an earlier version installed itself into there. Too long ago - can't remember.
