- Addons have been moved from
- Non-default plugins have been moved from
The change was made for several reasons:
- %APPDATA% is a per-user location whereas Program Files is machine-wide. Since addons and plugins are user-specific components, having them in a per-user location is better.
- Since %APPDATA% is a per-user location, installing to it does not require UAC elevation. Thus, Skin Installer can install addons and plugins without administrative privileges.
Note that plugins in %APPDATA% cannot override plugins in Program Files.
This change does NOT require changes in skins. We handle everything automatically. But you really should stop using the Addons folder
This change affects Standard installations only. Portable installs are not affected.
