Installer beta

Post by dickymoe » Fri Dec 23, 2005 2:09 pm

Hello, i'd like known (it's no very english but i'm french)... why are no installer for the beta version ?

An installer, it's good, for exemple name the beta version on xnviewbeta and this one no overwrite the stable version !!

It's better than a zip I think...

No ?

:) Hello, bonjour !

- It's better to install the test-version in another separate directory, that I do always…
- So, it's more flexible to change only the needed items along the advancement of the tests…
- Working such as, an installer is useless…

:mrgreen: Kind regards,

I don't think so. You can unzip xnview anywhere you want, you can also rename it, so if you have XnView stable in "C:\Program Files\XnView", you can unzip XnView beta, rename to XnView beta and move to "C:\Program Files\XnView beta", no need to install anything. You can even copy your xnview.ini settings file to beta dir.

Easy? You mean clicking nex buton is easy? Speed? Well if you just click the nex then it just might be faster... naah zip is still faster.

XnView don't install any runtime components or don't need to create any registery entrys in order to work. So why beta versions should be published in installers?
