Subject [jira] Closed: (DIRSERVER-830) Windows Installer overwrites configuration
Date Tue, 13 Feb 2007 05:36:07 GMT


Alex Karasulu closed DIRSERVER-830.

    Resolution: Fixed

Committed in revision 506868 for 1.0 branch:
Committed revision 506870.

This fixes the overwrite problem.  Also it seems inno installer offers your last installation
directory which in this case was c:\Program Files\apacheds-1.0.0 when you already have it
on disk rather than offering c:\Program Files\apacheds-1.0.1-SNAPSHOT.

I guess this might be because of the minor version? Don't really know.  However if you uninstall
the old installtion directory the generated installer offers up the correct directory to install
1.0.1 in.  I really don't like this behavior but I cannot find a way to prevent it.

For now we have a way to prevent the overwrite issue which is what this JIRA is about.

> When I used the 1.0.1 snapshot installer to upgrade 1.0.0, it overwrites my configuration
file (and maybe some other stuff it shouldn't???).  I am not sure everything that get overwritten
because I just wiped out my test install and installed fresh.
