#461 closed Bug report

installer doesn't install to All Users profile

Reported by: rexdieter Owned by: Tim Kosse
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: rexdieter, Tim Kosse, Alexander Schuch
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


When installing FileZilla-2.2.0 (on a WinXP box) it
offers no capability to install for "All Users", and
instead unconditionally installs Start menu items in
the current users' start menu (whether they be an
administrator or not).

FileZilla-2.1.7 had a similar bug. It installed to
"All Users" but the permission of the files were set to
be unreadable by anyone other than the user who
installed them.

does anyone care to fix the installer?

This bug report has been closed due to inactivity and has possibly
already been solved.

You can reopen this report if the issue still exists in the
latest version of FileZilla (Server).

This bug is still present in the installer of FileZilla 3 (beta), the next major version of FileZilla. The following bug report should be used to track the progress on this issue. Closing this bug report now.
