This one will probably get objections and numerous reasons why it is necessary, but I really, really hate it anyway:
Developers - particularly those with a catalog of exactly ONE application - who insist on having their program listed under a company name in Program Files.
This really bothers me, too. It is mostly for this reason I forget I even have
the program (unless I use it all the time).
Equally annoying is that when I install a program, setup asks which folder in Program Files I wish to install it in : I remove the company name so that it reads:
Program files\software name
and it creates its 'company name' folder and installs it there, anyway.
Why is there even an option, if it's just going to go wherever it's going to go, anyway?
Is Program Files not really
the kind of folder they're talking about or something?
Windows does have some peculiar inconsistencies, so this wouldn't surprise me if this were the case.
And what is this: no file version, no date, no nothing in the details of the installation file. I keep all of my downloaded installation files (sometimes other users want versions of software no longer available & no one has a copy). It's a pain to have to make folders with dates or versions for each setup file.
