I justed reïnstalled my windows 7 notebook. One of the many drivers I need to install are the drivers for my nvidia graphics card.
When started it askes the user where to extract the setup files. So I set the directory to %temp%/nvidia . The etraction process began and after it completed the installer returned with an error stating it could’nt find the installation files.
I was wondering two things
1) Why does the installer have to ask me where to put the extracted files if we the OS offers a TEMP directory
2) And secondly if you change the default path, why did the installation program got lost?
I see this much to often. Software that isn’t using the %temp% directory when it should be. If more software would utilize this shortcut it would be much much easier to keep your pc neat and clean..
