Own Files are Shared

Does anyone know why objects installed to your own TARGETDIR are being caught as "shared" on uninstall. For example, I have a .url file in a documentation subdir that I know for certain nobody is "sharing". I'd rather simply fix why OnRemovingSharedFile() is being called for this file.

The file in question has not even been opened up -- I can duplicate by installing and then immediately uninstalling -- so I don't see how there could be some Explorer hook at play here.

At any rate, the files that are triggering the sharing exception are almost always in the TARGETDIR, never changed, and never opened. Somehow the uninstall process is seeing plain text files in the TARGETDIR as shared.

Well I split this reply from the original topic because you're better off having your own post.

In any case, whether or not the file has been opened in Explorer doesn't have any bearing on its shared status.

Instead, check the properties of the affected file groups, to make sure their Shared property is set to No.
