How can i update qbt on Windows without using installer? #10126
qBittorrent version and Operating System
4.1.4 Windows 7 64bit
What to do exactly to update qbt to new version without need to use .exe Windows installer?
My worry is about the uncertainty if qbt needs to work with configuration files (%appdata% folder) during the update or if i i just need to replace files in Program Files/qBittorrent folder.
Installer is smart: it detects installed qBittorrent version and just replaces files in "Porgram Files".
so, update using installer is completely safe. I'm personally upgraded qBittorrent a lot of times, no any data loss happened.
in any case if you worry, just backup qBittorrent folders from AppData (both AppData/Local/qBittorrent and AppData/Roaming/qBittorrent) and see what happens with upgrade.
