View Full Version : InstrallShield Basic MSI uninstall does not display a dialog with Finish button

04-19-2018, 06:23 PM
Hi all,
I used IS 2018 and created a Basic MSI project.
When uninstalling the product, it confirms if I want to proceed with the uninstallation
and once confirmed starts uninstalling. But then it simply vanishes without
showing a dialog at the end where you can click on the Finish button.

As a result the user does not know if the uninstall is done or not.
In my IS 2018 'InstallScript MSI' project the dialog with the Finish button is displayed
which is nice since the user knows the uninstall is done.

Please advise.

Hi agshah,

By default windows installer/msi's uninstall behavior would be :
Asking for a confirmation about uninstallation
Then it proceeds with removal of components
It won't bring you up wizard with finish button

If you want to accomplish that Installscript/Installscript MSI will be the option for you.

Hope that helps,
