I don't know if this is in the plans for AlamDV3 or not, but while going through the download of all these plug-ins. Do you think for the AlamDV3 Development program, you could create a drop-down menu area that would allow the developer to assign a certain directory for the file to be downloaded into after the package is open?

Also not sure if plug-ins can be handled differently, but a self-extracting plug-in based off of pre-assigned directory would save those downloading plug-ins a lot of time.

Or perhaps there is something like this out there already and I'm just doing it wrong?

Cheers!

Hmm no one on the AlamDV2 development team has replied to my request yet? Was I unclear in what I was trying to say? Or is what I'm asking already to be included with AlamDV3 and just being over looked?

I understand what you are saying. You want an easier way to extract/install plugins. Either by pre determined self extracting compressed files or by having an area in the interface to choose what directory the plugin is installed to.

Even though ALAMDV3 is coming and this seems like a good suggestion...
I think the reason why none of the CSB crew are responding is because they have not seen it yet. You might want to try posting this suggestion here:

Hope this helps
