I used the Component Wizard to install a .NET service we wrote. Everything installs fine. However, when I uninstall, all files are removed but the Service Control Manager (SCM) entry for my service is not. What might I be doing wrong?

I'm using InstallShield 11 (with the latest updates applied) in a Basic MSI project.

TIA,

In the Control NT Services section of Advanced Settings (I'm looking at 10.5 here) you need Uninstall Delete set to Yes for your Service.

That was it. I added a new entry and event for my service and set Uninstall Stop to Yes and Uninstall Delete to Yes.

Thanks!
