Hi all,


I have a package in which i need to retain some of the files while uninstallating the package. So, please help me in having an ADD/Remove programs facility/functionality for the uninstallation process.

Please help!!

thanx in advance...

[It depends on the type of project, but there's one follow-up here (http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=137306).]

What type of project are you using? Both types of project should create an Add or Remove Programs entry, by default...

I am using Basic MSI and InstallScript projects, when i uninstall a package, the GUI should ask me to selectively uninstall files.
how can i achieve this? please throw some light on this.

thank u

The uninstall process for both project types enables the user to select which features to uninstall (using the Modify maintenance type), but not which individual files to remove.
