Summary0004187: (De)Installer removes files added by user
DescriptionDuring deinstallation of previous version of Scibus ALL files are deleted, even added by user. I have uninstalled 1.3.3.3 to install 1.3.3.4cvs and I have lost one script modified by me (with different name than original). (De)Installers for previous versions of Scribus have left the script and directory it's been placed in.
Additional InformationAll versions (1.3.3.3 and below) clear main Scribus dir, so I have to add gdiplus.dll everytime I install new Scribus' version.
TagsNo tags attached.

As long as NSIS does not provide a convenient way of doing so, this is a won't fix, i will just add a warning for now.

If you want to avoid reinstalling gdiplus.dll, just place it in your Windows\system32 directory. For your information also, preferences allows you to specify a custom script directory.

that's strange. most installers that i know, leave files modified or added after installation by deafault (or ask to delete them with other files).
so maybe there should be different installer used for scribus?

yes, i know. but some apps (specially ms ones) use this dll also. i don't remember if their dirs or system dirs are first scanned for the dll - it may be a problem, if different apps should use newer version of gdiplus.dll. because of that and - in addition - because i don't like to add files by hand to system dirs (not safe afaik), i'm still placing gdiplus.dll in scribus' dir.

i know this also, but don't like: more and more dirs, and one day you cannot find what the hell are all those dirs for. windows itself do it for me day by day ;)
wrong way (for me).
it is also strange, because previous versions (un)installers (to 1.3.3.2) haven't delete scripts dir (with my script added).

ok, so i have to be carefull when reinstalling/updating scribus...
