Nero Burning ROM Code Audit

I've a report, I hope it can be seen by or sent to developers.
In programming, when we have a code written over years and years, the code needs code audit at a point to optimize and correct logic that 10 years ago was alright and now is not.
Also needs some code cleaning, for example, some settings were saved in registry under group Nero6 , Nero 11 , Nero 2014 , Nero 2015 and finally Nero 2016!!!
It's not a bad idea to clean and collect and regroup all them in a unique group for example Nero 2017, does not take too much time.
There is an expression called "Hell of DLL" in programming, it can be used for Nero, but it can become pretty better, faster and more optimized if a persnickety programmer is in charge!
More description on snapshots, and the rest depends on company policy and developers working on it...

    Omidsolo,
    I have to agree, the amount of "crap" left behind when a Nero version is uninstalled is very annoying, and using "legacy" version folder names in newer versions is "ugly" programming. :/

    Hi,

    Dear Since5.5, that was expected, developers who don't care about these details can't be expected to correct their 10 years work after a decade!

    Dear Lucky, yep, that one I forgot to mention, Nero leaves a dirty target system after uninstall! Most footprints are kept and not removed afterwards! However, when the 1st part is ignored, thinking about 2nd part is a joke! 2nd part is easier, even I can write a Nero Cleanup Tool to remove all traces of Nero installation after uninstall, what I cannot do is about the 1st part!

    If Nero was going to be an OS, the source media would be a 50GB Bluray disc and 30 minutes to boot up with this level of optimizations!
    Each year just changing the startup logo and add some minor functions, those functions' settings are saved in new registry entries and new folders or target system making it bigger.
    Sales team do their work much better...
