View Full Version : SUPPORTDIR and patch

Are the files that were in the SUPPORTDIR on first installation, there again during a patch?
If so, can they be patched to?

In my case, I have a vbs file in the supportdir, but it's possible that I need it again when deploying a patch.

Or should I in this case, just put it in a component and install it?

I would not recommend counting on the same files being in SUPPORTDIR during an installation and during a patch. SUPPORTDIR is a temporary location, and is deleted after the install is complete.

Therefore if you need a file there both during installation and during patch, I would recommend copying it both times.
