Hi,

At the time of uninstalling, i need to unregister a service i have installed. The binary file is present in the [INSTALLDIR] and contains a command line option to unregister the service.

I try adding a custom action for executing an exe and it doesn't get called (the command prompt window does not open as it does when the same custom action is called from the install section).

I also tried adding NOTEPAD.EXE as the custom exe to call and notepad is opened. I do all this under the 'After Ready to Remove Dialog' section.

What's going wrong here?

Thanks,
a new user of Installshield Express

I now saw message - "Uninstall custom action not fired" in the list and the reply there works for me... sorry for posting this again!
