View Full Version : Closing a running app during Uninstall

Is it possible to close an app that is currently running during uninstall? If so, how would I do this?

The install of this file is not unusual, I just install the file a common files directory and then place a shortcut to it within the Startup items. The shortcut is removed correctly, however, since the app is still running in the background (no UI) the file and its directory are not removed even after a reboot.

What I would like to do is to simply stop the application before letting InstallShield uninstall the application.

Thanks.
