I was very excited when I was notified of the TDM 5 release. I have been using the Beta almost exclusively as it has proven to be much better that the 18.104.22.168 release.
The TDM 5 installation included a dialog asking me if I wanted to essentially use the settings from the previous installation or install as a new installation. I chose to use the previous installation.
I was VERY dissapointed to find that even using the previous installation all the paths are still pointing at a redirected network drive instead of the local machine which is my preference. The installation should definitely allow the user to specify the location for all folders as this is a really big job to fix after the installation. Makes me wonder what the dialog really was refering to. There are 18 different path specifications plus unique version specific folders in some cases to deal with. A network redirected path can have a huge impact on performance of the product.
The very next day following installation I am still getting the error for accessing the OLE registry unless I “run as administrator”
As eager as I am to move to the new version 5 it is really disappointing that it will take a few hours worth of work following the installation to actually have a usable installation.
When the dialog offered to use the information from my previous install I was anticipating being up and running with all the models, local version manager, paths, etc. set up.
