[Closed] KeePassPro - PluginCache in AppData

Is it normal to have PluginCache (some folders and files in them) at "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\KeePass\PluginCache"?
KeePassProPortable is not even on but the folder is still there for the whole time.

Change Something?

By default, it is configured to use Data\PluginCache. Did you change something or manually move some files around?

I didn't change anything. I

The only thing I did is: I put KeePassHttp.plgx into "KeePassProPortable\App\KeePassPro\Plugins". It's a plugin for connecting Google Chrome with KeePassPro.

Can't Reproduce, Check INI

I tried reproducing this and the cache for KeePassHttp.plgx is saved to KeePassProPortable\Data\PluginCache as expected. Would you please explore to KeePassProPortable\Data\settings and open up your KeePass.config.xml file in Notepad++ or similar. Find the entry <PluginCachePath> and see if it is properly set to <PluginCachePath>{APPDIR}\..\..\Data\PluginCache</PluginCachePath>.

I don't have such an entry as:
PluginCachePath
The only entry which has Plugin in its name is:
PluginCompatibility

Copy Own Settings In?

Did you at some point copy your own settings in? That entry is in the KeePass Pro Portable default settings on first launch.

Unfortunately I can't

Unfortunately I can't remember and cannot rule out such possibility. I have been using the portable version since 2019 but before that I used a regular version. I definately did copy the database so I might have also copied over the settings from the regular version to the portable one as well.

What should I do now? Remove the settings file and set it up like a fresh new installment? I can see PluginCachePath in the config file in DefaultData. Maybe I can just copy it over to my current config file? Unless my config file is not missing any other entries from the portable version. Are you aware of other portable-related entries in the config file?

Add It To Yours

Close KeePass Pro Portable. Open up the settings file you see in DefaultData. Find the PluginCachePath line and copy that whole line. Open up your existing one within Data. Paste that whole line just above the line </Application> and then save it. You should be good to go.

I did it just before you

I did it just before you posted but I pasted PluginCachePath right after /TriggerSystem line and before PluginCompatibility line, so it is the same way as in the original config in DefaultData.
So far it works like a charm. PluginCache folder was created at "KeePassProPortable\Data".So I deleted the PluginCache located at "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\KeePass". The folder was not re-created there so everything looks just fine.

By the way, I've been wondering, maybe it would be a good idea to have Plugins folder also at "KeePassProPortable\Data", next to PluginCache and settings?
