View Full Version : Custom Actions during Uninstallation

01-03-2005, 09:14 AM

I have a problem with the Uninstallation.
I need to execute a program that stops the application before uninstallation to escape from the opening of dialog box that asks the user to stop the same application manually.
This program is very important because it provides many system restore operations before uninstall.
Unfortunately, I can't be able to perform this operation.
I positioned the executable file in "Custom Actions during Uninstallation / After Initialization (before first dialog)", but it doesn't start.
Is there anybody that knows a solution?

Did you create and analyze your installation log for clues?

Thank you for your answer. With log analysis I can discover only that the EXE file during uninstallation not start. But no errors we can see in the log file.

Otherwise, we have solved the problem.

For starting exe file during uninstallation you must add the switch /qf following uninstall shortcut in the ShortcutS/Folders Group.

Thanks same to everybody.
