View Full Version : Non-shared files marked as shared?

Hi all,

When I uninstall my app using ISE it asks me if I wan't to remove
several shared files that seem to be no longer in use. While this
is fine for the files in the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory, it's also
asking this question for the app's EXE, README.TXT files and
all the other files that are installed to the program's personal
directory.

Is there a switch that I can throw somewhere to stop this behaviour?
Obviously, I'd want the EXE and other files in the personal directory
to be uninstalled. They shouldn't be marked as shared.

Which ISX version are you using? The Professional version only increments
the shared registry counter for all files transferred to the
windows\system directory.

ISX Pro Eval 1.1. But it asks if I "really want to remove the shared"
EXE file and TXT files that are in the program's home directory, NOT
the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory. I would think these files wouldn't
be shared and should removed automatically.

Hello!
I have the same problem with the release version of ISX Pro 1.1.
It seems to ask about all files in the [Program Files] group. In my
case the readme file and application exe file.

Thanks
