Hi, noticed while fixing #1946, some wingrass installer cruft left behind in the file system:

  • install_msruntime dir from osgeo4w left over in ...\Local Settings\Temp\ (all versions of grass). Delete and RMDir commands in the nsis installer script don't catch it.
  • Makefile and grassrc.tmpl file have made it into $GISBASE/demolocation ? (grass7 only)

Replying to hamish:

  • Makefile and grassrc.tmpl file have made it into $GISBASE/demolocation ? (grass7 only)

See r39708 - Build demolocation using $(MKDIR) and $(INSTALL) instead of "tar"

the wingrass installer isn't using 'make install', it simply does a recursive copy of src/demolocation/ from the svn checkout directory:

;Define the source path of the demolocation files

!define DEMOLOCATION_PATH "c:\OSGeo4W@OSGEO4W_DIR_POSTFIX@\usr\src\grass_trunk\demolocation"


        ;Install demolocation into the GIS_DATABASE directory
        SetOutPath "$GIS_DATABASE\demolocation"
        File /r ${DEMOLOCATION_PATH}\*.*

so as long as that is the case, probably an explicit delete like is done for .svn/ there is needed too.
