deleting all created files after uninstallation RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1760273066 posted

    I made a setup program that Create an access database during Installation 

    After I setup my application and I want to uninstall it

    the installer delete all folders , shourtcuts, etc.,..

    But when I want to reinstall the application again the database exists before the code of creating it comes (I added a messagebox after creating the database to know that it's created)

    Do anyone have an idea to solve this problem?

    Unistalller will only uinstall those file installed by the installer  that is what u add in ur setup since that is stored in registry and during uinstall uinstaller keeps track of them but other files are remain there as it is since its created after installation
