Persistent User Data - add non-install files

Post by SergeMerz » Tue Jun 26, 2012 6:08 am

Hi,
Persistent User Data (PUD) should the all entry of wild cards and files not in the install (e.g. a license file downloaded after install should not be deleted on version upgrade).

An example my install has an empty directory APPDIR\license

I would like to add to PUD the file APPDIR\license\users_license_file.txt so that if the file exists in older install it does not get overwritten.

Hi,

I'm afraid that I don't understand. If the file is not in the package, why try to preserve it? If the license file is downloaded by your application, your application is responsible for handling the existing file.
