Hi, when our app runs, it creates a few files. When the app is uninstalled, IS obviously doesn't remove these files, because it didn't install them. However, I need to make sure no files/folders are left when the uninstall completes.

My question is, how/when should I remove these during the uninstall process so that the uninstall removes the entire application folder?

E.g. If I use a custom action, should I attach it to the "After Ready to Remove Dialog" stage? Will I then be able to launch/call an installed .exe/script/dll that will remove the files prior to the real uninstall process actually running?

Thanks in advance!

I think I would go with "Before System Changes"...
