EAP Installation still leaves 80Mb of junk in the temp dir.

I've just deleted 0.7Gb of redundant Idea installation files from my hard drive. They accumulated over the last dozen or so eap installations.

Is there any chance you could alter the installation process to delete these files automatically?

Thanks,
Vince.

download .zip, unzip it into old directory -> no junk

Thanks for the tip. I'll do that next time but it addresses the symptoms not cures the problem.

Can you specify, in which directory (under Windows, if thats your OS) the IntelliJ installer leaves the junk ?

Currently I'm using W2000 but the same thing happens on WXP.

I've just installed 828 from the download dir on my d: drive into d:\IntelliJ\Idea. After the installation there were 85Mb of installation files in
C:\Documents and Settings\<user.dir>\Local Settings\Temp\I1055509967

Each installation creates a directory similar to \I1055509967.
