[Fixed] MoneyManagerEx leaving some data in App directory

Hope I have the right place. Happy to take pointers.

Example:

MoneyManagerEx puts stuff in
\PortableApps\MoneyManagerExPortable\App\MoneyManagerEx
that I think should be in
\PortableApps\MoneyManagerExPortable\Data

is this something the original app author has done or something the person making it portable has got wrong?

[Moved from Portable App Development to Other Apps Support, better title given]

If this is happening during

If this is happening during runtime, that is perfectly acceptable and should be cleaned up on exiting the app.

If it is still there after exiting, you would be best to speak to the dev here who has made it portable.

More information needed

What specific files are you talking of?

mmexini.db3 goes in App\MoneyManagerEx while running, and in Data\settings when it's finished. If that's not the file/directory you're talking about, there's probably an issue.

Prepared to do some homework

Thanks to whoever moved the conversation, I'll know for next time. First thing I wanted to know was "who dunnit" as in remote developer or local implementer. That has been solved.

I've d/l'd the source code to see if I could aid in finding what should be fixed but having looked at it don't think I'm looking at what the PA version is. Where do I see the PA version? I know what to look for in the code, I just don't know where to find the code / not included with the PA install (?) make / config or similar files.

More than happy to do some exploration, I'm not expecting someone else to do all the work, I just can't find the PA code set for the app I've yelled about. I am happy to spend some time looking at a PA from the inside out but should also say that MMEx is an adjunct to GnuCash for me (I just use MMEx for an occasional view) so it isn't a big deal to me if it isn't obeying the rules about data placement or indeed works at all.

It did seem a good opportunity to see inside a PA though.

Made with PAL

Money Manager Ex, like many of the applications here, is made using the PortableApps.com Launcher. Documentation on how it works can be found here. The specific files that make Money Manager Ex work can be found in App\Appinfo\Launcher

Hope that helps, feel free to ask more if needed!

Fixed in 0.9.9

This is fixed in 0.9.9 today. All log files, sql files and the custom sql index will be moved to Data on exit for proper preservation and use with the backup tool. Be sure to back them up yourself before upgrading!

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