View Full Version : Install uninstalls product

05-13-2005, 04:32 AM

If my product is already installed, and then I try to install it again then it gets uninstalled immediately, even before any install UI is shown. This means that if I cancel the install, then my product is uninstalled. Odd.

I'm fairly sure this didn't happen in 10.5

Any ideas?

This only happens from the Build->Run menu. If I run the install manually it's all fine.

If you haven't yet, you might look at the setting Tools > Options > Preferences > Uninstall before installing.

Thanks Robert. Don't why I hadn't noticed this behaviour before.

I have checked the check box associated with

Tools > Options > Preferences > Uninstall before installing.

and when the user uninstalls the program, the executable remains.

Is there a bug with Microsoft where it does not completely uninstall a program and its files?
