#120 closed Bug / Defect (fixed)

Upgrading from 2.2-RC to 2.2-RC2 or later leaves extra GUI icon on the desktop on WinXP

Reported by: Samuli Seppänen Owned by: Samuli Seppänen
Priority: major Milestone: release 2.2.0
Component: Packaging Version: OpenVPN 2.2-beta / 2.2-RC (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


In 2.2-RC (and earlier) the GUI icon was installed to the "Current user" desktop. This was changed to "All users" in 2.2-RC2 to fix a Vista (and later) start menu uninstall issue. However, this change introduced this new bug:

If one upgrades from 2.2-RC (or older) to 2.2-RC2 (or later), the uninstaller tries to delete the non-existing "All users" icon, leaving the real "Current user" icon on the desktop. Updates from a 2.2-RC2+ to another 2.2-RC2+ release won't trigger this.
