Description John Felton 2018-02-01 00:08:38 UTC
Description:
In LibreOffice 6.0, installation folder has been changed from "LibreOffice 6.0" to "LibreOffice" (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62303).
Wouldn't it be good to change Start Menu folder (C:/Windows7/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/LibreOffice 6.0) too for unification?

Actual Results:  
Start Menu folder: C:/Windows7/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/LibreOffice 6.0

Expected Results:
Start Menu folder: C:/Windows7/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/LibreOffice


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

@Mike, since you fixed bug 62303, what do you think about this one ?
Comment 2 Mike Kaganski 2018-02-01 11:02:55 UTC
(In reply to Xisco Faulí from comment #1)

It's trivial to fix; whatever UX team decides; possibly an easyhack that concerns installer.
Comment 3 Mike Kaganski 2018-02-01 12:15:33 UTC
If a code pointer would be needed:

solenv/bin/modules/installer/windows/directory.pm

sub add_root_directories
$realproductkey variable

+1 from UX to change the start menu. The only drawback is that you wont get two versions in parallel.

But I wonder what happened at bug 62303. Installation means hopefully not that the user directory was touched (still 4).
