Yes, you're quite right. I meant to install the files in a subdirectory under HOMEPATH. I'll change it immediately.

Edit: Now changed to HOMEPATH\dslstats

That appears to work properly under Win 10 now and the Uninstall icon is successful too :)

Did you download the latest version, filename dslstats-5.9.3-2-windows-installer.exe?
And did you clean out your DSLstats configuration files before running it for the first time?

Yeah the installer works on WIN10 and Windows defender makes a complaint my preferred location for DSLstats has always been C:\User\Me\documents\DSLstats, but with the installer I don't get the nice DSLstats Icon just a plain one.

I had cleaned out old stuff, but somehow had downloaded v.3.9.3.1. Another thorough clean, and this time found 5.3.9.2

AOK now! :fingers:

Thanks for help.

I can't do much about Windows Defender unfortunately, but I have sorted out the icon. I won't upload yet another version just yet, to see if any other comments come in.

Have also used the Installer on Windows 8.1 Pro and it works fine and uninstalls and the appdata where the DSLstats config file resides is unharmed  :thumbs:

Hi Roseway

Installing and uninstalling on Linux Mint 18.1 worked OK. One small suggestion if I may. How about offering an option to delete the contents of the .dslstats directory when uninstalling?

Generally speaking there should be no binaries inside the user profile folder, but I am guessing there is issues with using program files as other developers have also gone the same route.

I am using the portable version of dsl stats so never tested the installer.
