Hi there,

I have a problem with my install-script!!

If User chooses to install into same directory as a previous version, I call the build in function UninstallApplication( szUninstallKey, "", LAAW_OPTION_WAIT ), uninstall-key is definitley correct, and Unstallation starts as intended.

BUT: Sometimes the following code is executed without waiting and what happens then is a complete desaster.

Funny thing that all went well with install-Shield 11, now using 12 I do not know how to fix that bug.

worst thing is that even if user waits for the uninstallation process to finish, an uninstall-instance of install-shield is still running after user clicks on finish button.

code as this:

if( AskYesNo( @ID_OTHER_INSTALLDIR, YES ) = 1)then
 if( UninstallApplication ( svLine, "", LAAW_OPTION_WAIT) >= ISERR_SUCCESS )then
   if( checkRegistry("SOFTWARE\\" ^ path, "Version") = 1 ) then
     MessageBox(@ID_DEINST_ERROR ,SEVERE);
 endif; // end Unistallapplication

greets r
