  • AppData\Roaming\Foxit Software\Addon\Foxit Reader\Install

    We have noticed a lot of files placed in "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Foxit Software\Addon\Foxit Reader\Install" which never seems to dissapear.
    The filenames are the following on this specific example user:

    Enterprise_reader_en_mis_7.3.4.311.fzip
    Enterprise_reader_en_mis_8.0.1.628.fzip
    Enterprise_reader_en_mis_8.0.2.805.fzip
    Enterprise_reader_en_mis_8.2.0.2051.fzip
    Enterprise_reader_en_mis_8.3.0.14878.fzip
    EnterpriseReader_en_9.0.1.1049.fzip
    EnterpriseReader_en_9.4.0.16811.fzip

    The files all together takes up about 659Mb on this user, we have about ~60 users so these files takes up nearly 40Gb all together in our roaming-profiles.
    I've got 2 questions:

    1) Why are they there?
    2) How can I get rid of them without making a script? Is this a setting in Foxit Reader?

    nikade ,Currently,when Foxit Reader downloads an update/Upgrade,it would store the update/upgrade install files(.fzip format files) under the directory below´╝Ü
    "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Foxit Software\Addon\Foxit Reader\Install"
    So those files you mentioned are intallers for updating/upgrading Foxit Reader.

    When we install update/upgrade in Foxit Reader which is lower than V9.2,the downloaded installer files can't be deleted automatically even after the update/Upgrade files have already been installed successfully.That is the reason why those downloaded installers are still left under "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Foxit Software\Addon\Foxit Reader\Install".User needs to manually delete those retained .fzip files under Roaming directory.

    However we have improved the update/upgrade mechanism for Foxit Reader versions greater than V9.2 (including V9.2),the downloaded .fzip format files would be deleted automatically after the installation of update/Upgrade were successful.
