digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 13264] New: 2.066-rc1 installer had problems


          Issue ID: 13264
           Summary: 2.066-rc1 installer had problems
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: installer

The 2.066-rc1 Windows installer went wrong on me.

First, it tried to uninstall, it offered to uninstall from 'C:\D'. My DMD
install is 'C:\dev\D', so it got the path wrong.
The path was presented in a greyed out textbox that I couldn't type in to
correct it, and no button to select the true install location.
The uninstall step failed.

Then when installing, I was given the option where to install, I chose
'C:\dev\D' and it installed over the top of my existing install, and wiped my
sc.ini file.

I needed to reconfigure my paths, and the '.old' file that was present beside
sc.ini didn't appear to be my version that was just overwritten, since it had
none of my configuration in it. It must have been from some previous time.
