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?
My project is "InstallScript MSI".
Thank you

Some times, the installation not able to removed the folder if any exe which is associated with the application running during the uninstallation.

1. Check that whether newly added exe(or any other application specific EXE) is running during the uninstallation?
If yes then use TAKKILL to kill that exe (note: use this before "removefiles" )


2. Check that is there any exe in the application which is associated with any services? If so then stop and delete the services during uninstall.
