pc issue Import option in the installation

10 posts in this topic

Is there any way that when installing / decompressing a version of maxthon v.5.x, DO NOT import anything at all?

For those who try several versions at the same time or different betas, it is a hassle that every time a new clean version is started, maxthon does an import without asking about it.

It would help a lot to get a truly clean installation if that option existed

Just don't sign into your account and use "Guest"

I always use a guest, and more to test versions

At the moment of choosing "guest", the importation begins automatically, which makes of the other facilities found in the machine

After looking at it again, import (unsolicited) occurs if Maxthon detects the. \ AppData \ Roaming \ Maxthon3 \ folder, from versions of the 4.x series

If a new portati version is executed, the profile of the 4.x series will be imported without asking for consent (just what you want to avoid many times with the portable version)

If you don't want to the data in 4.xx anymore, you could delete the folder of "Maxthon 3" . All data of MX4 had restored in "Maxthon 3" folder. 

Please make sure that you do not need them anymore before you delete that folder.

Win+R-%appdata%-Maxthon3

the 4.x series data, I do not want to erase them, because I keep using them (especially to test)

The only way that import does not happen (not requested !!!!) is renaming the folder \% appdata% \ Maxthon3, which I think is a great discomfort for those who are constantly testing "betas" in our systems

You just have to put a check box "do you want to import data from old ....." or something similar

And they are the ones I use, I do not understand the answer

In fact, to use a portable version, in a machine with the configuration that I detailed above, creates the problem that I pose

If you only use portable versions it's not an issue. But if you have a version installed then it causes the problem.

If you do a lot of testing, then i'd recommend using only portable versions. I don't really see what benefit an install version offers, in any situation?

But you're correct, it always imports data from %appdata%\Maxthon3/5 if it's there.

The idea is to ensure that a user gets up and running as quickly as possible which is great... if you want it. An option on startup the first time would be nice. "Userdata from a previous version was found, would you like to import it?" Actually I think they used to have that popup under the navbar??

And so I do it, since binarily the portable and installable version are identical.

What does not prevent to test also the installables (we know that in them they come more fircheros than in the portable version).

Right, a notice with a checlist would be enough
