Windows installer sometimes fails to install 'stopwords' file

Reported by: Brian Smith Owned by: Brian Smith
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.1.2
Component: Installer Version: 1.1.1
Severity: normal Keywords: stopwords


When the Windows installer upgrades an ancient version of POPFile (0.18.2 or earlier) it fails to install the 'stopwords' file.

Up until the 0.19.0 release (11 June 2003) the Advanced tab in the UI used a hard coded set of ignored words. Since the 0.19.0 release these words have been stored in a file with the name 'stopwords' and they can be edited through the UI. In fact it is possible to delete the 'stopwords' file and run POPFile without any ignored words defined.

If the installer is used to upgrade an existing installation where the user has chosen to delete the 'stopwords' file then the installer will respect the user's decision and not create a new 'stopwords' file.

However when upgrading an existing installation the installer needs to create a new 'stopwords' file if it detects POPFile 0.18.2 or earlier because these ancient versions did not use a 'stopwords' file.
