Forum / Remote Desktop Manager - Feature Request

Remove installer after auto-update

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi,

From user perspective it might be a bug, but I am a developer so I know that it can be treated as new feature smile

Context:
Generally the msi's afters auto-update are not removed which leaks user's disk space a lot.
Disk space is cheap but still for example I have SSD 120GB and it is really not a lot these days and each installer takes > 100MB.

Repro steps:
1. Install older version of Remote Desktop Manager
2. Auto-update to newer version

Actual result:
The msi is located C:\Users\robert.pajak\AppData\Local\Temp\Update after installation

Expected result:
After installation the msi should be removed from the disk

I have run Disk Cleanup and the files are still there. It does not remove these files.

Good point,
I will add this to our todo list.

This is strange. I have verified and we are cleaning the file after the update.

The issue is still present. Do you want me to enable some debug logging or anything?

We must be missing a case. Here is how is supposed to work.

RDM prompt to install a new version
You download the new version and click install
RDM close and start the installer but add to his internal settings the downloaded file for future cleanup
RDM is updated by the installer
RDM restart and cleanup the downloaded file

Is the right scenario?
