DcUpdater and un-installing FARR Plugins
« on: April 13, 2009, 10:52:25 AM »
I have Find and Run Robot (FARR) and DC-Updater (DCU) installed.

And, I have some FARR Plugins installed.

At various times I have wanted to un-install a FARR Plugin, and to do that I have removed the folder for the FARR Plugin.

This works to remove the plugin from FARR, but I find (at least recently), that the Plugin is no longer shown in DCU as an item available for installation (or update).

Am I missing something when I do the un-install so that DCU can keep track of the install-state of the plugin ?

Is there a recommended procedure for un-installing FARR Plugins ?

Sorry for the delayed response, i've been a bit under the weather..
You're not doing anything wrong.. it's a weakness in the current way that the updater knows about new programs/addons to install.

I'm in the process of revamping this completely in the new version of the updater, so stay tuned.
One of the additional features will be the ability to uninstall items using the updater.
