[Fixed] Miranda: [FIXED] Did 0.7.19 Portable wipe out previous version for anyone else?

I downloaded and installed the new 0.7.19 and it wiped out my previous folder in lieu of the new one. Fortunately I was smart enough to make a backup of my previous folder but did this happen to anyone else? I tried twice and both times my whole directory is overwritten.

What Was Overwritten?

What was overwritten? Everything in Data is preserved in my tests, as with previous versions of Miranda IM Portable.

Not over written, deleted.

As I watched the installer start the process I could see it flash a bunch of "Deleting" strings before it went to install the new version. Just did it a third time and everything is deleted first then installed a fresh copy.

Ah

Ah, looks like the new installer isn't preserving your Miranda plugins right? My apologies. I'll fix that now... thanks for the bug report.

Fixed in 0.7.19 Rev 2

This has been fixed in revision 2 which is now live on the Miranda IM Portable homepage.
