Is there rollback during uninstall?

I have been reading the documentation I have found on Internet, and in some documents it is said that if an UNINSTALLATION is aborted, there is no Rollback script execution.

Is it true? If it is, how can I restore system modifications done by a custom action during uninstall???

Thank you very much.

It is not true.

(How do I know? I once created an installation that raised an error in uninstall: due to the rollback after that action, it was restored to exactly the same state... and still wouldn't uninstall).

Thanks Zweitze, that is good to know. Bummer though with that install that wouldn't uninstall! Bring out MSIZap.
