Don't create a new folder for each new build

  • For Windows PC: I use a program for multiple monitor management that adds some control buttons to the title bar. This program depends on being pointed to the path of the executable file. But each time Opera updates it makes a new folder and the executable is moved to that location. This breaks the link and the title bar buttons dont locate correctly. The executable should stay in the default C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera directory and not keep moving to new release subdirectories.

  • Opera's executable is launcher.exe

  • @leocg launcher.exe launches the correct opera.exe and then closes. It's worth a try pointing the multiple monitor management program to launcher.exe instead, but there's a good chance it won't work. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    The way Chrome does it is to just have chrome.exe outside the versioned folders and its dlls etc. inside the versioned folders. It's much nicer (in the case of firewalls).
