Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-482) Uninstalling Studio on windows remove all the other installed component in the same directoy...

Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSTUDIO-482:
--------------------------------------------------

Ouch !!!

That's very bad... Sorry about it.

The problem is that we simply drop the folder where Studio was installed.
It looks like this in the uninstaller code:
RMDir /r "$STUDIO_HOME_DIR"  ;Studio install dir

I think we used this because usually on Windows each software is installed in its own (sub)
folder.

We have to fix this...

I think we could use something like that:
http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Uninstall_only_installed_files

> I downloaded Studio, launched it, and as I already had it installed, it asked me if I
wanted to remove the previous installation. So far so good. Wait... I had a window open where
all the deleted file were shown :
> /opt/cygwin/<all my cygwin files !>
> Basically, it wept ALL MY BLOODY FILES, including Studio. Hopefully, I didn't installed
it in c:\windows, otherwise ...
> There is something wrong in the uninstaller, and this should be fixed urgently. I'm afraid
that it may differ the release ...
