View Full Version : Cannot delete installed files

05-21-2004, 07:52 AM

my setup installs a few database files (Access Mdbs) with a demo model for my application. These files should be removable when a customer decides to build his own model or already has one. When I delete these files after installation the windows installer tries to auto-repair them. The files do not have a key file set nor is there anything special. I noticed that the file's properties have the vital flag set.

How do I prevent the files from being repaired? It seems that auto-repair applies to any file installed in the files section of isdev and also when using xcopyfiles.

Any help is appreciated!
