Asterisk

I noticed you're using an asterisk in the File field for FileWriteN. I'm pretty sure this does not work and would require custom code. Has this been tested?

File=%PAL:AppDir%\foobar2000\library\*\tree

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Yes,

Yes I tested it before the beta release and it is working fine for me. (At least the drive letter change for sure)

Data is in App

The data for this app apparently remains in the App directory permanently. This is not permitted for released apps as it would not be backed up and will be lost in the future when a user selects to 'reset' an app (aka wipe the App directory).

[Fixed] Yeah I know. This is because

Yeah I know. This is because I didn't find a way to prepare when people will install new components and then create a new folder name in App/foobar2000... so directory move will be complicated. I think I can find a way to bypass this. But thanks anyway for the info.
PS: that why I put RemoveAppDirectory=false in installer.ini (I know it is not the best but I will change it)

FIXED in 1.5 Dev Test 1 release

About this app…

The current version is 1.6.8. Can this be made into an official release? I would like to see this official soon.

I think that the developer has abandoned this.

Permission

As a proprietary app, we'd need permission from the publisher. I don't think there's any way to contact them and they specifically forbid distribution other than unaltered binaries.
