View Full Version : Dynamically linked sub-dirs are not removed on uninstall. (IS 11 Pro)

Basically, I've got a directory tree that I've included in the project by a dynamic file link in the base directory (which includes all files and sub-dirs). Installation runs fine and the entire dir tree is copied into place. However, none of the subdirs (or files in those subdirs) are removed when I uninstall.

For instance, if the following files are included by a dynamic link to all files and subfolders in '/html'...

/html/blah.html
/html/foo.jpg
/html/stuff/help.html
/html/moreStuff/help.html

these files are not uninstalled...

/html/stuff/help.html
/html/moreStuff/help.html
/html (assuming because the dir wasn't empty)

Are there any known issues with removin dynamically linked sub-dirs?
I'm using IS 11 Pro, and have applied hotfix #3.

Same effect in my project: The files in the "base" dir of each component is uninstalled, but the subdirs aren't. Any solution yet, anyone?

Edit: The solution is here
