#210 closed Bug (wontfix)

MSI installer forgets the initial installation settings

Reported by: Sven Rech Owned by: marchal
Priority: Important Milestone: CrypTool 2.0 BETA 4
Component: Installer Keywords: MSI


When installing CrypTool 2.0 with the MSI installer and unchecking the "create desktopicon" checkbox, there will be a problem using the autoupdater.

It will create the desktopicon anyway, because it forgets the settings.

We're not using MSI anymore for Beta 4, though we should check whether the problem exists for NSIS, too.

This problem does *not* exist for Windows 7: The correct re-installation of shortcuts works for both, desktop and startmenu. PLEASE NOTE that other platforms (in particular Vista) could be problematic.

The NSIS installer itself does not forget any registry settings.

I'll open up a new ticket for the NSIS-specific issues (i.e. stuff related to the auto-updater) and close this one.
