[Solved] Silent installers with same names aren't separated

Recommended Posts

I added several "setup.exe" files in different directories to the silent installer. When I integrate the project they are all thrown into the same directory and inevitably most are overwritten. Furthermore, the files from the source directories (when included) are comingled.

Identically named files should be given separate directories (e.g., \setup, \setup1, \setup2, etc) so they will not clash

Technically they shouldn't be all names setup and should be given a name such as 'CCleaner','7zip', WinRAR', etc.. if items with the same name exists then a _1, _2, etc... will be appended.

I've only half fixed it so far because i've been ill (still not 100% better).

Maybe a different way of doing this would be possible. Legolash2o, could you give the user the option to pick the directory names they go in? (And then give a warning if any of the directory names are the same.)

I've just implemented the last of this fix and it should be ok now :)

I'm just going to check if you can edit the names by clicking on them directly in the list, if not i'll make it possible.
