i got some problem I can't cope with. the uninstallation worked alright until we added one more *.exe file into the project. Now the uninstallation doesn't remove the "Program Files/My App/" directory, although it gets absolutely empty.
what's the problem?
Thank you

I suspect you are refering to TARGETDIR not INSTALLDIR

It could be one of many reasons.
1. Is the creation of the TARGETDIR logged? Is logging enabled? If logging is disabled in the script at the time of the TARGETDIR's creation, then it is not logged for removal when you uninstall it.
2. Possible that the 'ref' count in the registry is not correct. Sometimes caused when you test the install over and over again and make changes, fix mistakes etc.
3. You could add some custom script to make sure that the folder is removed.

Anyone else have any more ideas?
