|Title||Risk of losing configuration when upgrading the P4DTI|
|Assigned user||Gareth Rees|
|Description||When upgrading to a new version of the P4DTI it's easy to accidentally delete your configuration. You have to carefully follow the instructions, which we know doesn't always happen.|
|Analysis||Here are some possibile ways to solve this:|
1. Write an installer (see job000046). Sledgehammer to crack a nut?
2. Don't distribute a config.py in the archive. Call it something else, e.g., "config-1.1.2.py". Ask people to copy it to config.py when they install.
3. Make the archive expand into a different directory for each version (e.g., C:\Program Files\p4dti-1.1.2). But this doesn't help if you re-install the same version.
