Hi there, I have now installed RC 3 with Update Manager. Hmmm and I am a little disappointed that there are no option for an alternative placement of downloads and libraries, as well of handling of the various placement settings.
First of all, WHY is the C drive the only supported placement for the downloaded files?
The C drive is the one drive you want to keep as clean as possible for "dead weight" - as it often is an SSD drive - and often in a limited size compared to other drives. The C drive should in my book be dedicated to programs and their execution only, period!! Data storage and the likes should be placed elsewhere. I will claim that most people have a dedicated destination for all their program downloads - and it is NOT the C drive!!!
Of course I can move the files once they are downloaded, - but I'm quite sure that the Update Manager then will refill the hardcoded folder as it can't see the moved files anymore, OR???
Secondly, I have earlier asked if there was a way that FP and RC could maintain set settings and not resetting them to default values at every update. You replied that you were working on it, but it doesn't seem to show in the update manager - so I still have to go and change values in 3DS.ini as well as the registry on all the computers in my setup, if I don't want the default setup???
So if all this is true (and I haven't misunderstood the idea with Update Manager, which I hope I have) - it's a setback in my book.
