Uninstalling Xenko deleted my entire program files folder


#1

I downloaded Xenko just to check it out, and when I installed it it installed DIRECTLY into the folder I selected to install it to rather than making it’s own directory. Most programs don’t make you have to manually make them a folder, so I wasn’t expecting this and just went ahead installing. Not too big of an issue (you would think) but then when I decided to uninstall it deleted not just Xenko’s files but my entire program files folder. I’ve had a few programs do that same install crap, but they never deleted all my other programs when I uninstalled them. Real nice guys, real nice.

Really sorry about that… I hope you can restore your computer somehow…
Currently looking into what is causing that.

checking my xenko install path…

Setting to delete top level folder was explicitly set (a long time ago!).
Surprised it didn’t happen before…
It’s now fixed in https://github.com/xenko3d/xenko/commit/2e1f3fe293468ef1def17c64bd319878ef219c1a

This won’t be effective until I release a new launcher/installer (in a few days), and people install using this new XenkoSetup.exe installer (launcher self-upgrading is not going through installer).

@whyHaveYouDoneThis sorry that you ended up being a guinea pig on this one…
