[Fixed] Installer 1.0.2 and temp folder

The PA.c Installer never seems to remove the folder it creates in the %TEMP% directory. It usually contains "textreplace.dll" (maybe I saw "registry.dll" in there a few times but I can't reproduce that one at the moment). Anyone else?

I see the same thing

On my system I have only found the textreplace.dll file left behind after running the installer. This happens on Vista (32-bit) and Windows 7 (64-bit).

Confirmed

It happens on my system too.
Running Windows Pro SP3, 32-bit.

This was already confirmed in

This was already confirmed in another thread. I can't find it right now, but the problem was caused by the registry plug-in not unloading.

You know, like like you're still running a program and if you try to delete its folder, Windows doesn't let you.

${textreplace::Unload}

InstallerWizard.nsh, v1.0.2, line 1015 (blank) should be replaced with ${textreplace::Unload}.

Also Registry.nsh is !included (line 63) but never used - it should be removed. registry.dll should never be there under any circumstances as it's not used by the wizard.

Thanks John

All working great now Smile

I've tracked the registry.dll down to FileZilla. I had a look at the code and, as suspected, the plugin isn't unloaded at the end. Do you want me to drop a note into the FileZilla forum or is here enough?
