Issue reported on Windows 10.


Le contexte de la session ├ętait :(profil=profile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Uninstall, operande=[R]org.txm.rcp.app_root.win32.win32.x86_64 --> null, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.natives.actions.CleanupzipAction).

Backup of file C:\Program Files\TXM-0.8.0_2019-09-03\TXM.exe failed.

File that was copied to backup could not be deleted: C:\Program Files\TXM-0.8.0_2019-09-03\TXM.exe

h3. Temporary workaround to update

- quit TXM if launched
- copy the "jre" directory of the TXM installation directory (eg. C:\Program Files\TXM-0.8.0_2019-09-03\jre) to "C:/jre"
- edit the file "C:/Users/User/.TXM-0.8.0/TXM.ini" to add the two following lines just before "-vmargs" :

- go to TXM installation directory, eg. "C:\Program Files\TXM-0.8.0_2019-09-03"
- right click on "TXM.bat" and select "Run as administrator"
- TXM will start with some errors in console
- do the "File\Check for updates" command and install the available update
- when the update is done let TXM restarts by clicking on "Restart Now"
- TXM will restart with some errors in console
- quit TXM
- edit the file ".TXM-0.8.0/TXM.ini" to remove the 2 lines added
- restart TXM
- after that you can delete the created directory "C:/jre""

h4. Solution 0

(for 0.8.0 fix or 0.8.1 ? or later ?)


stop to use build.properties of org.txm.rcp.feature for Window system and do the "jre" directory copy from the NSIS setup script
- it seems we can keep the build.properties for Linux and Mac
- build a new setup for Window

h4. Solution 1

- change the way of embedding the JRE, use P2 and bundles, see: #2725
- NOTE: should permit to update or change the JRE directly from Eclipse Updates mechanism

h4. Solution 2

- do not use P2 and Eclipse updates mechanism
- let the 3 installers do the "jre" directory copy
- it means a new setup is needed each time the JRE needs to be updated (or special scripts to do the copy/delete of directories)
- NOTE: JRE updating will be very rare

h4. Improvements

The TXMUpdate handler file rights test fails on Windows: it does not detect the missing rights.
