    1.1.3b3 BUG?

    I am not sure... but I can not get Destinator3 FE working properly If I chose to install it to a different folder then default one (i.e. C:\DestinatorApps), for example to: "C:\Program Files\GPS". it install fine but gives different "unknown error" messages upon launch.
    If it is a Dest3 hard requirement to be installed in its default folder, why do you offer end-user possibility to change it during install?

    I do it just to annoy you personally. No offence.

    Install to C:\DestinatorApps or don't use it, your choice.

    You do not annoy me, I just found what I would call a bug. What I am trying to say is skip install dir selection dialog if it MUST be installed in default folder. There is no reason to have it there and you are only confusing (not annoying) users, who like their systems personalized.
    Thats a suggestion, no offense.

    Notwithstanding the fact that the option in the installer may be confusing for you (and the fact that this is an installer issue, not an application issue), if you bothered to do any searching in these forums, you would find that there are a multitude of posts that deal with:

    1 - the fact that the SDK assumes an installation to C:\DestinatorApps; and
    2 - the fact that with some effort on your part, you can change this.

    Here's a starting point:

    Yo, respect man. All I want is to find and help eliminate bugs and logical nonsences. I am not interested in changing default folder that much. And yep, I have seen the posts you mentioned but they are "old" already so seeing that option in installer I simply thought its OT already.
    Simply said stop f...ing with me. I just want to help.

    Oh dear, stop whining!

    The SDK is hard-coded to look in C:\DestinatorApps. It is a bug, but not one created by me. If you want to put it somewhere else that's up to you to sort out.

    Stop crying that the installer allows you to change the default and just be happy that you HAVE an installer.
