#11398 new defect

Install windows version for all windows users

Reported by: slodki_dom@… Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Installer Windows Version: tested
Keywords: windows install start menu users icon Cc:

Description (last modified by Don-vip)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Download latest windows installer with a non-elevated user account
  2. Install in default path under Windws 7 with admin privileges
  3. Start menu icons are not avaiable for standard windows users except admin account
  4. When JOSM started from c:\Program Files (x86)\JOSM\josm.exe all works ok for all users

What is the expected result?

JOSM.lnk should be created by windows installer not in c:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\ but in c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\ (location linked from c:\Users\All Users\Start Menu\).

Or user selectable option in installer should be available (to install for all users or specific user only).

What happens instead?

No JOSM in start menu after install. JOSM can be started only by:

  • navigating to install directory and selecting exe
  • creating manually link to exe
  • searching for JOSM in search box in start menu

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.

Start menu issues as reported by OP.

Additionally the installer should not take C:\Users\<admin-account>\AppData\Roaming\JOSM as target for the user preferences when started from a non-elevated account.

The target should be C:\Users\<non-elevated-user-account>\Appdata\...
