#912 closed defect (wontfix)

Makefile.PL must remove obsolete files from previous versions (Win32 launcher)

Reported by: dolmen Owned by: dolmen
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: editor Version: 0.59
Keywords: install Win32 Cc:


In 0.59 the Win32 launcher changed.
The following files which were installed by previous releases must be removed when Padre is upgraded:

  • C:\strawberry\perl\bin\padre.exe.manifest: the manifest file is now embedded in the executable
  • C:\strawberry\perl\bin\wperl.exe.manifest, if it contains "Padre": this is the old manifest file. Now Padre is launched with padre.exe.

The Makefile.PL should remove those files.

Note that wperl.exe.manifest impacts other applications which use it for launcihng graphical perl scripts. With the new launcher that doesn't use wperl.exe anymore I fixed partially this side effect, but removing the manifest is the next step.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

We do not need to do that now. Please reopen if you think otherwise.

Thanks for your time
