Little Installer problem

Recommended Posts

Hi!

This is a little prob that I see since the 2.2 beta-installer-test.

I use the "quick launch" bar (I don't know the tecnical name) in the Windows application toolbar.

If I put the shortcut for PDN in this toolbar everytime I install a new update I have to redo the shortcut, because the older one does no longer work (even if all the parameters seems to be ok).

And please... put something that says the angles degree in the layer rotate/zoom windows!

The issue with the shortcut icon is that we can't detect if you've moved or deleted the icon we place on the desktop. I agree that it'd be nice if we could just update it no matter where you've placed it.

And the Rotate/Zoom dialog isn't done, don't worry :) Fixing that just isn't at the top of our priority list at the moment.

Can I ask why a shortcut that should point always to PaintDotNet.exe won't work after an update?

I noticed that the shortcuts property (in all start-programs, desktop and quick launch) shows in "Destination" "Paint.Net v2.5 Alpha 3" instead of c:\mypath\PaintDotNet.exe and it is disabled.

I think it has to do with the way that the MSI is creating the shortcut. It doesn't actually point directly at the EXE, and in the process creates some other problems. I'll look into another way of creating the shortcut -- the right way would be to not recreate the shortcut when applying an update.
