Cache Installer apps don't comply with standards
« on: June 15, 2020, 10:36:16 AM »
Hi,

I am a new user of PatchMyPc and this is really a great software.
I have tried many other utilities and this one is THE best.

I activated the Cache Installer apps option (IT Pro Caching Mode) + Do not delete App Installer files to keep install programs.

I was a bit surprised to find out that :
1. Cache folder cannot be localised.
2. Cache folder is in the Windows Program folder, which does not comply with Microsoft standard according to wich it should be in ProgramData folder or in User\AppData\Local\ something.

However, using the free version and working on my own, this is no big deal for me.

Regards.
Jean-Pierre

Stuck on with the same surprise, did you get away out to this yet?

This is the default location and you can change it to where ever you want!
