Corrected title : Orphan files after uninstallation
I have developed a setup using installshield.

There are no problems during the installation.
But when my product is uninstalled, the windows installer leaves behind some of the files of merge modules which i have used in my project.

Does anyone know the coz? rolleyes.gif tongue.gif

This is probably posted in the wrong area.... anyhow
What files does it leave behind? Are they files that were copied to a new location during the install?
By default, the uninstall will only remove files that it knows about, all other files must be added to the RemoveFile table.
