I want to know how remove file when I uninstall my software, I must use a script?.
And when I made a patch I want to remove some file and replace them by other one and I don't know how to do this... Must I add them to the RemoveFile Table? and how? because I have a lot of file to remove.
Sorry for my bad english, I hope you understand my problem.

If you want to remove a file that you did not install, then yes, you will need to add records to the RemoveFile table, using the Direct Editor view.

The MSI Help Library page "RemoveFile Table" should explain what to enter there (these forums should have examples, too); note that you can use wildcard characters (*) to delete multiple files.
