Don't extract CIS5 files to desktop!

I just did that as with every version before, but this time, wonderful CIS5 installer erased all files on my desktop and corrupted the Documents icon of the desktop.
Apparently it’s made to wipe everything in its extracted root folder. Whats unfortunate is that THAT was my desktop. And everything on it. Thankfully it didn’t erase folders as well.
So next time someone designs a cleanup for your own installer, make it in a way that cleans only its own files, not entire folders. Unless you make it automatically and always extract into TEMP. Now i don’t even know what it erased exactly. ■■■■.

Any particular reason why you chosed DESKTOP, and not \Desktop\Comodo Installation Temporary Files\ ? :stuck_out_tongue:

Because installer doesn’t make them by itself. Besides, why should i? I do the same with all the other tools and none has erased my data so far and i haven’t made any dedicated subfolders…

Just as a warning before someone erases half of his data just because he/she decided to extract in the “wrong” folder…

No offence, but what I personally do is make a folder on desktop and extract it there. But nevertheless a strange behavior, but anyway most users would extract to the directory offered by CIS installer…
Thanks for pointing this out, good to know! :-TU

Also, BETA builds did not have this problem since i’ve extracted them this way several times. They messed up the behavior in the final release of CIS5…

That sounds like a bug to me.

Rejzor can you wrap this up in a bug report as described by the following:
