View Full Version : MSDE doesn't uninstall with product

I'm including the InstallShield MSDE 2000 Object for NT platforms as a merge module.

One of the options is for MSDE to "uninstall with this products uninstall". So far this hasn't worked yet and my MSDE Instance is always left in the Add/Remove Programs Dialog.

I do have custom uninstall actions firing before system changes. Would this prevent MSDE from uninstalling?
Or is this a bug in the Merge Module?

Thanks,

Adam

I found that MSDE will only uninstall using add/remove programs if I select remove from the Change (Maintenance Dialog) Menu.

If I select Remove directly from the add/remove program menu it remains on the system.
