Subject: Strawberry .msi uninstallation takes too long...
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 414b
Strawberry's uninstallation takes too long without feedback during the search for additional files within the c:\strawberry directory to delete. The proposal is to solve this two ways: 1) Quickly scan for the number of files to check so that the progress bar can be made to update. 2) Skip checking for whether the file was originally in the .msi if the file's containing directory was not originally in the .msi.

#2 has been done for January 2010 Beta 1, plus the fact that if the directory is not in the MSI, we can add one record to delete all the files in that directory, instead of one record for each file. This should help.
Still want to improve this more for April...

July's versions will now scan only the directories that are likely to have user files in them - cpan, cpanplus, ppm, and perl/site. Files added in other directories WILL be left behind. (Yes, I know some dual-life modules still will install to core, even on 5.12. I consider that a bug on THOSE modules, but files left behind would only occur if updating the module ADDED files.)
