Hello,


I apologize for the delay in replying.
I want a completely portable installation, so i use Override.cfg (https://help.remotedesktopmanager.com/index.html?installation_configurationfilelocation.htm)
And deleted the directory %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree


However, when you start RDMFree (5.1.2.0), these directories are re-created:

userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns\New
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns\NewAdmin
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns\ToDelete
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns\ToDeleteAdmin
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\d39a73bf-f35e-423e-80bb-87557f579a36
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\d39a73bf-f35e-423e-80bb-87557f579a36\PlayList
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\TheGreenBowVPN
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\TheGreenBowVPN\Connections

These files are also created:
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\d39a73bf-f35e-423e-80bb-87557f579a36\Favorites.xml

%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\Addoninfo60.xml


As a result, this installation of RDMFree is not fully portable.


If this is important, then I use Windows 10 1809 x64.

Hello,


I do not confirm that the problem is solved.
RDM Free 5.1.3.0 still creates directories and files in the user profile:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\d39a73bf-f35e-423e-80bb-87557f579a36\Favorites.xml
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\TheGreenBowVPN
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns\ToDelete
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns\New
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns\ToDeleteAdmin
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\AddOns\NewAdmin
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\Addoninfo60.xml

Additionally, I checked RDM 14.1.3.0 - it creates only directories (without files):
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager\6DA1668C-CC67-4BD0-8156-9971EE1F0EDA
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager\TheGreenBowVPN
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager\AddOns\ToDelete
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager\AddOns\New
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager\AddOns\ToDeleteAdmin
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager\AddOns\NewAdmin

For one checked PVM trial 10.0.0.0 - files and directories are created:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\PasswordVaultManager\7A04F75C-5ED1-4272-A5F1-D59BC172099C\Favorites.xml
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\PasswordVaultManager\TheGreenBowVPN
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\PasswordVaultManager\AddOns\ToDelete
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\PasswordVaultManager\AddOns\New
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\PasswordVaultManager\AddOns\ToDeleteAdmin
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\PasswordVaultManager\AddOns\NewAdmin


Configuration files (without registration information) attached.

Hello,

this bug is still present nowadays and can be recreated with the instruction written on the first post.

In that folder also the file SSHFingerprints.xml is created if you want to remember the SSH fingerprint upon a new connection.

Hello @Raptor,

Have you updated to RDM 2019.1.33.0? Also what type of Data Source are you currently using?

Best regards,

Hi,

yes i'm using the latest version with a local sqlite datasourse; i also performed a clean test.

You can recreate the problem downloading the zip, and following this guide:

https://help.remotedesktopmanager.com/index.html?installation_portableusb.htm

Those folders appear every time you launch RDM, even if you delete them.

Regards.

Hello,

I have been able to reproduce this issue in our test environment.
A ticket has been assigned to our engineering department on that matter in order to see what can be done.

I will update this forum thread as soon as we will have more information on that.

Best regards,

Hello,

i tested the latest version (2019.1.39.0) and there is a great improvement for portability.

Now only an empty folder is created under C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager; it would be nice if no folder at all are created under C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local

Thanks.

Regards.

Thanks.

Hello,

This is still being looked at and it is assigned to a dev. We will let you know once we have a fix, now that RDM 2019.2 is out of beta we can put more time on this.
