OWASP Installer Guidelines

This is a proposed set of guidelines for the installers of OWASP projects.

Please update this page with any suggestions for improvements you may have.

OWASP projects should be installed into a project specific directory underneath:

C:\Program Files (x86)\OWASP\

or for older Windows versions:

C:\Program Files\OWASP\

On uninstallation the 'OWASP' directory should be deleted if there are no other files or directories left underneath it.

Installers should add programs to the 'All programs'/'Start Menu' list in a directory underneath an 'OWASP' directory.

If necessary the 'OWASP' directory should be created and a link to the OWASP home page added.

On uninstallation the OWASP 'Start Menu' directory should be deleted if there are no other files or directories left underneath it.
