Post Installation path changed by update process Reply with quote
Usually I install programs into custom directory located on other partition than system one.
I noticed, that SA updater installs the newer version into default its directory (c:\Program Files (x86)\SQL Assistant 7\) instead of the one chosen for previous installations. IMO installer should re-use the path.

I believe it actually does, or at least it's supposed to do that, but if the program has been installed in multiple places, it picks the first one it finds in the registry. To update an instance in a customized location, please download the setup from the web site and run it manually not using check for updates function.

Hello
I've checked registry settings, make sure they point properly to current installation location (in my case D:\_programs\SQL Assistant 7\". Unfortunately the updater is still trying to install SA into "Program files (x86)\SQL Assistant 7\" dir.

Even installer itself suggests program files directory, while there is SA already installed so it should know its location.

After some while, I can confirm none has been improved (incl. recent two v9 builds)
Still, installer run in update mode (spawned by SA itself) silently installs into "Program Files (x86)" directory, while previous build was in another location.
When starting installer in install mode, it shows "Program Files (x86)" directory as default path.

After year of waiting, it's starts to be a bit annoying.

with regards

Actually, I have missed some notes in the related ticket. there were some related changes in 9.0.176, which if I understand them correctly, may resolve the issue at hand. would you please give it a try and upgrade to the latest build?

I'm on 9.0.176.
If something has been improved, it didn't show up while updating to this version.
