Hi All,

I have created an Installer using the Installshield Multiplatform for my application ( client and server ) . This works fine. I have also created the Uninstaller for the application. But, When I try to uninstall the application keeping the Client and the Server open ( or any other file open), The Uninstaller removes all other files except the ones that are open. In this scenario, I would expect the Uninstaller to abort throwing an error stating that the files are open and it suggest me to try again after closing the files.

Is there any way to do this???
Is there any way to delete the files that are open at Uninstallation time?? OR
Is there any way to prompt the user to close the files and try uninstalling again???


Any suggestion is appreciated.
