I have installed Xamarin in the default location in C:\Program Files on my Windows 7 machine with VS2010 Pro. I have found that the installer created and left behind these directories in the root of \ with 37.9MB of files within.
D:\>dir VS* Volume in drive D is Data Volume Serial Number is D02E-E101 Directory of D:\ 27/02/2013 10:36 PM <DIR> VS2012_EXTENSIONS_DIR 27/02/2013 10:31 PM <DIR> VS2012_ITEMTEMPLATES_DIR 27/02/2013 10:31 PM <DIR> VS2012_PROJECTTEMPLATES_DIR 27/02/2013 10:31 PM <DIR> VS2012_ROOT_FOLDER 0 File(s) 0 bytes 4 Dir(s) 1,765,019,426,816 bytes free
Should these directories have been removed by the installer? Especially as I do not have VS2012 installed. And why was the installer writing these to \?
