Summary0000004: Winbareos installer does not write config
DescriptionWinbareos installer does not seem to write config files - at least not in the expected directory. Expected them to be in the same directory as they used to be with B*cula.

They are not linked in the task-menu, neither.

Really not there or moved elsewhere and not documented?

Found out:
Configs now at c:\ProgramData\Bareos.

If there are existing configs while installer runs, new configs are stored as *.new (e.g. Hence software doesn't work,
if again installed after an uninstall with wrong configuration.

This makes user thing there is a bug despite having entered all config data correctly during installation.

Solution should be:
- rename old config to *old and install new config properly
- ask user to confirm to overwrite existing config

The new installer (-8.1) now creates shortcuts in the startmenu for each config file.

Also, if config files exist, they are moved to *.old and the new ones are installed in the right path so that they are used.
When doing this, the user is informed that the file was moved to *.old.

with 8.1 even worse: there are no config files at all written to c:\ProgramData\Bareos - directory is empty. Links in task menu are present.

Problem seems to be related to old bacula installation on that system. This does not seem to work.

Make sure to first uninstall bacula before actually installing bareos.
