hi folks,

Installer is created in basic msi project type, target OS is windows 7 embedded. On every uninstall or upgrade, product is leaving cached msi file in c:\windows\installer directory and it causes space issue.

It is happening with 2 of my products both will be installed on same machine. Installation scenarios are as follows: One product always gets uninstalled and installed just like fresh install and another one always gets upgraded.

Why installers are leaving cached/orphan msi files in c:\windows\installer directory. Could you please suggest me to solve this issue.

Thanks in advance
Phanik
