Installation settings for start menu (Windows)

S4 - Minor

The latest beta uses "MuseScore" for the Programs Folder and "MuseScore 0.9.6" for the "Add/Remove Programs" listing. However the Start Menu shortcut is still "MuseScore 0.9".

Probably the shortcut should be either "MuseScore" or "MuseScore 0.9.6"

MuseScore version: 0.9.6 b2, r2811.

(Operating System: Windows 7)


I have the same result as lasconic for the start menu. So I can't reproduce "the Start Menu shortcut is still "MuseScore 0.9"
I did uninstall MuseScore 0.9.6 beta 1 before installing beta 2.

I uninstalled before installing

In the past, my shortcut icon always fond the program, but this time I had to find out that it was in a new folder. Also the soundfont had to be re-connected.

All seems to be fine now.


This hasn't changed.

However, since some people wont do an uninstall and end up with two folders (MuseScore and MuseScore 0.9), I wonder whether the installer can't perform an automatic uninstall if it found a previous version.

"In the past it was always recommended that one uninstall before updating."

Xavierjazz, this is still recommended. I just have lots of versions installed because I use them for testing.
