DiffMerge 3.3 Windows Installer

Post by pheb62 » Mon Aug 01, 2011 7:20 pm

Hello there,

I would be happy if either
a) the installer would recognize a previous version of DiffMerge and offer to use the old installation path
(it DOES find it, but it removes it) -- or --
b) give the user a CHOICE to change the default installation path.

I prefer having my apps and tools somewhere else than on the C: drive ...

The installer obviously has a free area for the path, but no controls to change it, nor does it display
where the files will go.

Best regards, and thanks in advance,

Sorry about forcing the install path. We switched to using a
new installer tool (WiX) and split the installation into shared
and non-shared components (so that other SG products can
use the shared EXE rather than having each product secretly
install its own copy) and we updated where the 32- and 64-bit
components are installed (the 64-bit installer installs into some
of the pieces into both Program Files and Program Files (x86)).

Not that any of that is an excuse. But having a customizable
directory got lost in the shuffle. Sorry.

I'll log a bug to fix this.
