Cubase Pro 12, Win10
Due to my slow Internet connection, I prefer keeping the (often huge) files which are needed to install some products, hoping to be able, in case of re-installations, to avoid downloading again.
As the Download Assistant (almost?) always deletes the installation files immediately after install, together with the WIN64/ProductName folder in which it temporarily stores them (I’ve not been able to find an option to force it keeping all downloaded files for good), I usually copy the folder somewhere else before the end of the product installation.
When I need to re-install a product I just copy the ProductName folder inside WIN64 again and then choose “Install” inside DA.
Sometimes this works, with DA skipping the download and directly installing (and then deleting), but sometimes (for example with some .vstsound files) the download starts anyway and the “new” downloaded files are saved in the very same folder, alongside the previous ones, even if they are perfectly the same.
What can be the reason for such a behaviour?
How can unnecessary downloads be avoided?
