10.6: Limitations of TextWrangler or BBEdit from the Mac App Store
Authored by: dgkanter on Jan 12, '11 02:59:31PM

Just downloaded TextWrangler from the App Store and it launched OK. It reports being version 3.5.2 (2888) of Sat, 08 Jan 2011, and shows as "Installed" in the App Store. Quite TextWrangler and downloaded from the developer's site, and un-ZIP'd, the Install TextWrangler Command-Line Tools.pkg and launched it. After the usual "continues", "install", and entering my password, it then reported "The installation failed. An unknown installation error occurred."

I think it's easier to just delete the App Store version of TextWrangler and re-download the whole thing from Bare Bones. After all, it's free, so you don't have to worry about your license not transferring as with BBEdit.
