I have a project with 5 features:
Application - This feature contains only the executable files.
Data - This feature contains only the data files required by the application.
Fonts - This feature contains the fonts I am trying to install.
Shared DLLs - This feature contains DLLs used by most of our programs.
System DLLs - This feature contains DLLs required by the systems that for some reason or another do not always get installed in the Windows\System32 directory when installing Windows.

Our systems are set up so that a certain client may have 5 or more applications on one computer. Since our applications create graphics for our clients they often use the same fonts in multiple applications. Therefore, when a client removes an application from their computer, we do not wish to uninstall the fonts along with it. If we do, then they try to run another application, it will not find the fonts and therefor not run correctly.

I am attempting to use the new "Font Registration" feature in 10.5 in a project that is InstallScript based - I am using an evaluation version as we are currently using 6.31 Pro.

I have marked Font Registration as Enabled in Project Properties, and under the Fonts component marked uninstall as No. However, when running the uninstall, InstallShield still uninstalls the fonts.

Any ideas about what is going on or how to work around this?

No, the shared property has been marked as No.
