  • many win user will complain that it install in root dir. i don't like that either. is it for purpose or accidental?
    • If you *have* to put it in the root directory (C:\whatever) I won't be using it. Is it really hardcoded to do that?
      • Unfortunately, due to some remaining issues with Perl on Win32, you have to at least have a path with no spaces in it.

        Since you can get the build code yourself, you can at least now generate your own installer that installs to the location that YOU want.
    • it also don't seems to remove its PATH entry after deinstal. this is a major point of suckiness that some installer have in common.
      • I found a hook in Inno Setup that MIGHT let me achieve the removal of the PATH entries... I'll have a shot at making it work in Update 1
    • like for instance the active state, if your installer is better on that, it's a real reason for me to switch
      • Unfortunately, there's nowhere in Inno Setup that you can hook that specific clean up functionality (or so it appears).

        I continue to look for a way to fix that.
