|0001655||SUMo||Bug||public||2012-08-03 19:48||2012-08-11 23:14|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||3.4.1|
|Summary||0001655: Install folder files reported as outdated|
|Description||Several application create an installation file folder somewhere in the system. SuMO identifies these files as outdated which maybe tru, however the actual installed apllication could very well be up-to date.|
Example: PerfectDisk 12.5 Professional
One of the install file folders created during install -->
C:\Program Files (x86)\Raxco\PD12.5_Pro_Install\x64\Program Files 64\Raxco\PerfectDisk\<several>.exe
... contains several files, most of them reported out-of-date by SuMO. The actual installed applkication is up-to-date.
|Steps To Reproduce||Install original "vanilla" release of PerfectDisk 12.5 Pro, don't delete the installation fiule folder (as most people will not).|
|Tags||No tags attached.|

|Do you have other exemple ?|
Add the moment, no. I've seen a couple of others, too - but I've deleted the folders a while ago. I just though I'd bring this to your attention.
I'll post more cases, when & if I come across them. But the one I mentioned is solid one... it's been hanging there since I updated PerfectDisk some time ago.
|Thanks. Then, for the time being, i'll wait for feedback and i'd suggest to "ignore" these iteams for the time being.|
|Added some more evidence from nVidia (see attach.)|
Oops, forgot to rerun a version check ;) New screenshot added.
P.S. Kyle, is it possible to delete posted attachments here?
Should i ignore path containng "\install*\" or "\*installer\" ? No side effect (like "\Revo Uninstaller\") ?

I think all these exceptions should be user-customizable, like a simple txt file in user profile with exception masks. We don't even need any UI for it (at least for now), since it will be a feature for power users anyway.
The syntax should allow both things:
1) exclude masks, e.g. "[-] \*install*\"
2) not exclude masks (must have higher priority), e.g. "[+] \revo*\"
Masks should be case insensitive, of course. Log file should reflect every final exclusion decision made from these rules for each processed item. Also, all current hard-coded exceptions should be moved over there.
This way we can handle this very carefully and make it better all the time with the help from community and without recompiling/upgrading SUMo itself.
|Status -> acknowledged/assigned then?|
