Installer doesn't remember options

Recommended Posts

It's incredible that in a so complex and great program the installer is so buggy and UX deficient... I have to check/uncheck every option of the installer every time an update is released :S same on all the other Piriform products!

It's been a requested feature by a few people for several years. One way around it is to use the portable build.

Do you install on-top of the previous version ?

Or do you remove the old first and perform a clean instal ?

I think installing over the top/removing old version makes no difference. I assume that it would be a practical and good addition to allow a "remember my settings" type feature when updating, however, I assume that when a product like this is updated and new tools are added,it is wise to check your settings again anyway as to avoid missing the option to check a newly added feature such as the remove UAC message on startup with this newest version.

That is in general totally wrong for any product - Piriform or otherwise.

If the old is cleanly removed there is nothing left to remember previous settings.

This topic concerns remembering past choices.

N.B. I have no experience of Piriform installer memories or lack thereof - I always unzip the Portable variants

 

I do agree with you about checking all settings and options after an update.
