I plan to create a PR regarding MSI windows package · Issue #5409 · rclone/rclone · GitHub.
To be specific, I'm trying to make an installer.exe(via NSIS) which can be used by winget to install(which is simply downloading the official zip release for windows and unzipping it.
However, to ensure that this can also be used to update an existing rclone install, I'll have to know the following.
- Does rclone create/save settings/configs related files? If so, where(and how can I know it)?
- Would simply unzipping the new rclone zip file onto the existing installation work magically, or would it potentially cause duplicate files to exist?(Yes, all rclone process will be terminated before this)
- If any, what work is required after updating rclone?
With these information I think it'll be rather easy to make an installer.
Note: after this, I'll PR the build as an github action(if all goes well)
