View Full Version : Uninstaller says: "Could not delete locked files"

07-21-2004, 09:05 AM
I am running my uninstaller for a product.
When the uninstaller quits (GUI closed), I get this message:

WARNING: could not delete locked file <some_path>/_uninst2/uninstall.jar

And also for other files in the uninstall dir.
The files are indeed not deleted.

I have full permissions for this account so I guess this is not the cause.

I am running under Solaris 5.8.
Installer package was built in ISX Universal.

Thanks in advance,

Try executing the uninstaller from a directory other than the _uninst directory, using a full path. It could be that the directory couldn't be deleted because you were still "in there."

This doesn't solve the problem, the message is still displayed.

Perhaps the order of beans in the uninstaller is wrong:

The last beans are:

- Uninstall
- Rename VPD (some custom bean I wrote)
- Summary Panel

I did try to change the order but still no results..
