Description radam 2002-08-22 22:48:12 UTC
the installer of 3.4 rc2 has deleted my mounted 
userdirectory (with the name netbeans in it) when 
upgrading. My userdirectory was before the upgrade not in 
mydocuments. After the upgrade the directory (with several 
subdirectories) was deleted.
Comment 1 Richard Gregor 2002-08-23 08:56:57 UTC
Please, could you provide more details? Which version of IDE did you
upgrade, where it was installed with what user dir ect?
Installer should remove old userdir after upgrade in case old userdir
is different than new userdir. Your files from old directory should be
in new userdir - under mydocuments\.netbeans\<version>
Comment 2 Richard Gregor 2002-08-26 09:59:10 UTC
Fixed in main trunk. Installer will no remove user_dir at all.

Comment 4 Richard Gregor 2002-08-28 07:56:47 UTC
Fixed also in release34.
Comment 5 Filip Rachunek 2002-08-28 09:37:58 UTC
The patch is OK. The only change is that the code deleting old user
dir has been removed, which is exactly what the fix should do.
Comment 6 Richard Gregor 2002-08-28 13:24:23 UTC
There is problem with installer freeze during uninstalling the
previous version discovered by QA. Additional patch is needed to
disable possibility to do upgrade and to allow the user only to
install new version and to import settings.

Comment 8 _ mihmax 2002-11-28 10:03:50 UTC
It seems that I forgot to rtag installer with release341_base tag and
branch a release341.

Should I do that?
Comment 9 Richard Gregor 2002-11-28 10:31:46 UTC
Probably yes.R.
Comment 10 _ mihmax 2002-11-28 14:13:08 UTC
I did tagging & branching.
