Hello,



I have an Windows Installer that installs the application and creates a shortcut on the startup folder in order to start the application on start-up.

The problem is when I uninstall the application, the application uninstalls correctly but it doesnt erase the shortcut. Then next time I start the computer I have an error.

The goal is to have a start-up application installed with the installer, then if you know a solution or a work around it will be great.

Thanks



Alfonso

Welcome to my world! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I have the same problem. Sometimes my shortcut gets removed, sometimes it does'nt. Why? I wish there was an answer.

I have a VB app that creates shortcuts etc, and I might need to build that into the installation so it can do a radar sweep at the end and clean up the rest of the shite the uninstaller 'forgot' to do. :)
