$PLUGINSDIR and some unwanted directories

Hello
I'm make portable installer with online download. Downloadable exe is nullsoft installer. When unpack this, in App\MyApp i'm see $PLUGINSDIR directory but really dont need it. How to skip unpacking this folder?

Try then post installer.ini

Try this:

In the DownloadFiles section of installer.ini, ensure that you have the lines AdvancedExtract1To=App\insertappnamehere and AdvancedExtractFilter1=$_OutDir\**

Note that you should replace "insertappnamehere" with the app's name.

If that doesn't work, plese post the contents of your installer.ini file here, and we can figure out what the problem is.

My error

It looked right to me, so I checked the documentation, and it looks like I made an error in my previous instructions:

Change AdvancedExtractFilter1 to AdavancedExtract1Filter, as documented at the link above, and it should work no problem.

Shifts are

AdvancedExtract1Filter=$_OutDir\**

Got a installer message: ERROR: (nncron193b3.exe > App\nnCron)
and folder created nnCronPortable\7zTemp
in App\nnCron cleanly, no files

I'll have to take a look at the exe then, maybe it's set up different.
