Summary0003035: delete dmargs.txt, tdmlauncher etc
DescriptionAfter the update, tdmlauncher.exe, tdmlauncher.linux and tdmlauncher.macos are no longer used, so they should be deleted during the update.

Likewise, the file dmargs.txt is used by tdmlauncher, but this no longer exists. So upon updating, the updater should just get rid of this file, as it will confuse users and serves no longer any purpose.
TagsNo tags attached.

Can this be resolved? All the above files seem to be deleted after updating to 1.08. There is still a tdmlauncher.txt file, if that's relevant.

I don't know. I've done nothing for this issue, and if the files are gone, then there's some existing mechanism for deleting them, and I don't know what it is.

I don't see a tdmlauncher.txt file in my 1.07 installation. What's in it?

My mistake, it's tdmlauncher.log, so nothing to worry about.

I just double-checked, and my copy of the folder before updating had the tdmlauncher.exe and other files, and the updated 1.08 folder does not, so the updater is definitely deleting them somehow. I'll mark this resolved for now then.
