[Fixed] VLC 1.1.0 folder left behind

Hello,

VLC 1.1.0 won't remove AppData\Roaming\vlc folder when the application is closed.

Thanks.

What did you do? Play a video? Or streaming? encoding?

Hi,

The vlc folder is created once the app is started.
Here's the content of it:

Removed On Exit

This folder is removed on exit of VLC Portable. VLC itself creates these folders. It can't be prevented. So the launcher moves them back to your flash drive on exit. I just ran it 3 times and it removed every time.

Side Note: AppData\Roaming is the equivalent of Application Data on Windows XP and earlier, for users who are confused by it.

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

I reinstalled VLC, the folder

I reinstalled VLC, the folder is now removed when the app is closed, but everytime when I try to watch a movie it builds the font cache. Is that normal? I mean shouldn't it run just fist time?

Thanks.
