I'm so happy they finally made it have an installer(there was a non official version that had one but it wasn't 2.0.)

This will make sure people put it in a folder and dont run it from a temp file.

So is this the recommended version to use now or the older version from Merijn?

 

I've been recommending 2.0 since it came out.

It shows more stuff and I haven't really run into any bugs.

Maybe I will keep both ;) . This new version doesn't look much different than the older. It sure isn't a major redesign.

The installer is nice. And will save me the five minutes of trouble of making one with Inno Setup. :rolleyes:

 

Since they're going to have the setup version available they should start to include a readme HTML file with some documentation i.e.; version/release date, and links to reputable sites that analyze the logs for free.

If there's an .exe and .zip (extract and run) version available of any program, i always pick the zipped one.

The installer version however makes life easy because you won't have to manually create shortcuts to it, and it's in a proper folder all of it's own where logs can be stored, etc.

With zipped version you can be sure, that files and shortcuts are not created all over the place.

Creating a new folder to unzip to takes maybe 20 seconds. Than right click on the exe and send to desk top or pin to start menu and I am done.

Yeah but why do that when you don't have too.

Plus there are people who always seem to run it from a temp file or something no matter what you tell them so this fixes that. Its not a big deal for most people but it does make things easier.

That seems to be the norm where someone just runs it from within the zip file, or from the webpage.

There are many I hear of doing that but I know you are not one of them. ;)

How do you know for sure. :P

Maybe I'm a green newbie chucked full of malware whom wants my log to mysteriously disappear after running CCleaner only so that I can post a bogus CCleaner bug report (joking of course). :P:lol:

It's absolutely useless to keep the old one. This new TM build has a number of bug fixes and additions and it is in fact for 99% identical to what Merijn originally meant to issue as v1.99.2

 

There's not a single reason why you'd want to hold on to v.199.1
