           Summary: Installing latest cvs116 package 14 Windows version
                    results in wrong paths in clawsrc
           Product: Claws Mail (Windows)
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: default
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: bdm at fenrir.org.uk

I have a machine at work with an up to date Win XP installation, it's nearly 5
years old and is hence a bit crufty. It has had Claws Mail installed using the
GPG4Win port ever since it became available.

When the package 14 version was installed it ended up with all the Claws-Mail
components under C:\Program Files\GNU\Claws-mail\, the previous version was
under C:\Program Files\GNU\GnuPG\

On running CM it complained that it was unable to find libetpan-13.dll, but
also complained it was unable to load the -13 versions of various plugins.

Investigation revealed that with the exception of the PGPCore plugin, all of
the plugins listed in clawsrc had the old path in their full filenames.

I resolved this and also edited the shortcut to ensure that it pointed to the
installed location, initially this had the old information in it. I had at
least 3 different shortcuts in various start menu entries, one in GnuPG and
another in GPG4Win folders and another under the new Claws Mail folder.

Not too difficult to fix but maybe more so for the less experienced SC/CM user.
