Is Local App Data modified on Extension Release?

Issue Description:
We are looking to release a new version in the Production channel of our Overwolf Dev Console. We use AppData/Local/ to store information that is custom to each user.

When we roll out a new version and the app gets automatically updated, does this reset the AppData as if it were a new install? Does it trigger the “new install” flow (i.e. with tutorial etc.)?

I couldn’t find anything in the docs that talk about local AppData specifically.


Sorry for the delayed response - Local app data is only removed when uninstalling the app (unless you use the relvant flag in cases where necessary). As such, you can (and should) use the local app data to keep data that should stay persistent between updates.

Hope that helps!
