|0004187||Scribus||OS-Win32||public||2006-08-28 11:26||2015-03-03 21:39|
|Target Version||1.6 milestone||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004187: (De)Installer removes files added by user|
|Description||During deinstallation of previous version of Scibus ALL files are deleted, even added by user. I have uninstalled 126.96.36.199 to install 188.8.131.52cvs 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 Information||All versions (184.108.40.206 and below) clear main Scribus dir, so I have to add gdiplus.dll everytime I install new Scribus' version.|
|Tags||No 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 220.127.116.11) haven't delete scripts dir (with my script added).
ok, so i have to be carefull when reinstalling/updating scribus...
