View Full Version : Development Machine Uninstall Problem

For the install I'm working on, on the machine upon which I'm developing, the uninstall has stopped working properly.

By that I mean if I uninstall from 'Add/Remove Programs' the uninstallation launches, uninstalls MSDE (as it should), and then claims to uninstall my application. However, when I check afterwards, the application files are still on the disk and the shortcuts are still in the start menu. The 'Add/Remove Programs' entry has gone though.

The uninstall appears to work fine on a blank machine.

Anyone else experienced this? Or know what might be going on?

I've seen this also, but i tracked it down to msde not really being removed. (it just said it was :-) I had to clear out the registry settings to be able to reinstall the app.

I think the reason msde did not get removed was that i had the setting "disable remove button..." on the msde properties not set.
