I love the pace emeditor is growing and how good the new features are. However, uninstalling and reinstalling beta versions is a pain. Could we have a shortcut to uninstaller/automatic updates? Beta testing is cumbersome, but pleasant at the same time 🙂May 25, 2009 at 11:04 am #7329
I just unpack .msi installer and copy new files replacing old ones!.. 😀 😀May 25, 2009 at 12:47 pm #7333
Use a Batch-Script for installing EmEditor automatically. Example:
:: Path to MSI-File
:: Path to EmEditor
for /f "tokens=4" \%\%i in ('"dir \%msidir\%emed*.msi | findstr /i "msi""') do set msifile=\%\%i
msiexec /a \%msidir\%\%msifile\% /qn targetdir=\%appdir\%
set appdir=May 25, 2009 at 1:04 pm #7334
thanks MariaK, but this script doesn’t take care of the unistalling.
If one executes the .msi, the result is a popup saying that one has to uninstall first.May 29, 2009 at 1:39 pm #7340
Why uninstall? Install a new alpha over the existing old one. That’s no problem. And I see no popup by using this script on my system.July 13, 2009 at 2:36 am #7472

Total Commander + InstallExplorer 0.9.1 plugin can unpack *.msi files like zip files. Shift+Enter to run *.msi files normally.
Then you can drag the new unpacked emeditor files to your current emeditor install folder. All your configurations will be reserved.
While it might work, I don’t recommend this way, and this will void my support. Some people report they cannot remove a version because uninstaller needs to locate a particular version of EmEditor. If you need to install an alpha version over an older alpha version, please uninstall the older version from Control Panel, and then install the new version.
