    Also I mentioned previously about the old addon getting overwritten question, but i'll reiterate the point.

    When the CC installs an addon, it makes a listing of all files it installs relative to the interface/addons folder. This list of files is then saved, starting with a reference count of one. When the auto update feature activates, it first goes into the file listing and sets the reference count of any files of the old version to -1, now all those files have a zero reference count. Those files are then deleted. Then the new package is unzipped and its files are added to the file listing with a reference count of one.

    What this means is that old files in the .zip that are no longer in the new .zip will get deleted.

    As I previously mentioned:
    It's mainly used to correlate bugs and issues in the client, and some of the issues I've seen I would've been been hard pressed to find a solution for without such data.

    Your computer specifications are kept up to date, so that any issues that arise we have quick data at hand to fix the issue. The client runs on many computers and though we do our best to fix any issues we can in house before our products go out, software bugs are a fact of life. If I see that x people are crashing when updating an addon, the first thing I would need to know is information about their computer. With that information I can build a test platform that mirrors their situation to the best of my knowledge and do some real testing. I query OS information specifically because though I know your running windows, thats not enough. I need to know what version, home premium ultimate what have you, 32 bit, 64 bit, service pack information, all of this is REALLY relevant when debugging.

    It's computer hardware specifics. No software information is pulled. No settings or information is pulled. CPU specifications are pulled using the cpuid asm instruction and also the number of processors is gotten from a call to GetSystemInfo(). Video mode, resolution and driver version are gathered using the d3d9.dll and enumerating the devices in the return. Free disk space is gotten using the GetDiskFreeSpaceEx api. Free ram is gotten using GlobalMemoryStatusEx api. The os version is gotten using GetVersionEx(&osv);

    To what end would you wish to disable it? It's mainly used to correlate bugs and issues in the client, and some of the issues I've seen I would've been been hard pressed to find a solution for without such data.

    You make it seem as though out intention is to be dodgy and install covert ads. I'm pretty sure it is in our interest to not serve malware, and infact it would be in our interest to keep it as secure as possible.

    If your a premium user, and auto install premium updates is checked, then addons will get auto installed if you are away from your computer etc. What the update all addons button does is check to see if there is a new version. If your not premium youll get the green arrows on the addon indicating it needs an update. If you are premium and you don't have auto install premium updates, you also get the arrows. If your premium, and updates are enabled, it should go through your entire addon list and if anything needs an update it will auto install it.

    Point number one, the best I can tell you is to go to settings and change your wow directory to be wherever you want the addons to go. It expects interface/addons to exist as a subpath.

    Point number two, the client already does. It checks the list of files in the new one against the files in the old one after installing. IF a file is no longer referenced, its deleted.

    The current curse client, as well as the new version thats in beta have always installed the Curse Profiler addon. As I mentioned previously the client has a feature for "Integration with wowdb.com and wardb.com for character profiles.". This is basically it. If you dont want it, right click on it, set it to "Toggle Auto Update" so its marked in red, and then manually delete the folder in the addons directory.

    Currently we take the .zip and we simply extract its contents into the interface/addons folder. We don't muck around with its contents, I believe that iss what you mean by unpacking. Does this have to do with the embedding/disembedding? If so there will be support for that soon.

    Clients version 1.0.5.4+ will not install an addon if it would copy files to a top level addon folder containing a .svn, .git, or .hg directory.

    For new users of the client it prompts at startup wether you want to scan for addons at all, and if you want it to install the addons it finds on your hard drive. Its very clear about the process.

    I personally would never use the option myself, but it does work as it's intended to. I personally would start fresh, installing the addons I wanted through the clients normal installation methods.
