I think xpra/xpra-client is trivial also: Full Xpra vs Client only Xpra.
(Is it "just" minus the server part, or there are other bits and pieces missing?)
Just the server part.
What about py2/py3? I think I've heard that some things are missing in Python3 ... but in what context? "Missing things" are missing indeed, or they just use Python2 stuff?
Not much missing now: #1568. The server needs a bit more work, the client needs a new session-info graph tab, etc..
In Windows 10, I had full-py2-x32 installed, and then I added full-py3-x64.
From here, arises a difficulty: Only one of the uninstallation "entries" are active.
In my case, I had a more weird error: the x32 bit version could not somehow uninstall itself, because of "lack of Administrator rights". However, it uninstalled itself through the Windows Uninstall. Then, x64 needed to be uninstalled manually through "C:\Program Files\Xpra\unins000.exe"
The possible solutions of this issue IMHO are:
As (1) has the complexity that xpra versions cannot co-exist (which might be wanted?), I propose fix (2)
We already uninstall any existing version before installing a new one. The fact that it doesn't remove the 32-bit one before installing the 64-bit one means that innosetup is already using a different appid for each - no idea how. (see install appid)
The innosetup script: browser/xpra/trunk/src/win32/xpra.iss looks up
Maybe this needs to be 32-bit / 64-bit aware somehow?
For completeness, 2 more things:
windows 7 "add and remove software" dialog
We could do the same thing for python2 vs python3 builds, but since python2 is going away soon, we won't.
Note: you can install both 32-bit and 64-bit versions on the same system but some registry keys will point to the last version you install and when you remove that version the features that rely on those keys will not work. ie: ".xpra" file associations and "xpra" urls.
Forgot to upload newer beta builds, now done.
Verified everything in the https://github.com/Xpra-org/xpra/issues/2126#comment:3 comment.
I just want to disambiguate something you noted:
but some registry keys will point to the last version you install and when you remove that version the features that rely on those keys will not work.
So if I:
".xpra" file associations and "xpra" urls.
will cease to exist, right?
.. will cease to exist, right?
Most likely, I've tested the other way: uninstall x64, and it didn't revert to the x86 mapping.
There might be a way to tell innosetup to backup the previous key values. I could only find: Registry section: createvalueifdoesntexist: When this flag is specified, Setup will create the value only if a value of the same name doesn't already exist. This flag has no effect if the data type is none, or if you specify the deletevalue flag Problem is that this does not solve the uninstall issue, none of the "uninstall" options they have would help it seems.
I guess that's okay. Just put the warning next to the "official dl page", that, hey, multiple versions are okay BUT references point only to the latest installation
Hopefully this didn't cause #2224.
