View Full Version : Uninstall unregisters needed OCX



NewsArchive
02-15-1997, 01:00 AM
I installed a program and then uninstalled it using Win 95 uninstall
feature in the control panel. When I did that it wiped out the
registration for CFX32.OCX, which is needed by Delphi 2.0 to run my
application! Since CFX32 and other OCXs are registered when you install
Delphi 2.0, I assume, Uninstall Shield should not remove those
registrations. How can I prevent it from removing registrations that it
didn't install?
HELP.

Place the file in the Windows or WinSys directory and Express will
reference count the file and only unregister and uninstall the file when
the reference count drops to zero. If Delphi 2 also uses the reference
count for this file then everything will work as desired.

Yes, the application appears in the Add/Remove applet in Control Panel.

Thanks for replying.

Delete the disks that were created in a directory of the same name of your
project, then recreate the disks. Check that the uninstaller (uninst.exe,
or isuninst.exe) exists.

If possible, email me the list of files that are in the "Disk 1" directory.

Directory Disk 1 contains the following files:
{BEGIN}
_inst32i.ex_
_isdel.exe
_setup.1
_setup.lib
_Disk1.id
Setup.exe
Setup.ini
Setup.ins
Setup.pkg
{END}

I removed the files from this directory several times and recreated the
disks. But that was not a solution.

The following things I do:
- I start a new Setup-project;
- I click at all the items at the yellow page (from Application Information
..... Disk Run)

The only files I add to this Setup-project are my new .exe-file and my new
help-file.

Thank you in advance!

Gert Veldhuis

On which platform (NT or 95 or 98) does this occur?

Windows NT4 Workstation. I've installed the InstallShield which is delivered
with Delphi2 and I've the same problem. By the add/remove software icon in
the control panel it's possible to make an uninstall, but I would like to
add this possibility to my start -program menu.

I see. You must unfortunately add that manually. Express will follow the
Windows 95 Installation Guidelines as per Microsoft.

Will it be possible to include uninst.exe (I found it in the Express
directory) in my Setupprogram and give the uninst.exe an option so
uninst.exe will uninstall my program?

UNINST IS included in your installation.

But where is it stored? Not in the directory with the other files after the
installation.

It is stored in the WINSYSDIR or the WINDIR to be central to other
applications.

When you tried this installation, did you install/uninstall something after
you testing this installation?

Open regedit, then browse to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.

Search for your application, and look at the UninstallString value. Post it
here.

No!

The string from regedit:
"D:\WINDOWS\uninst.exe -f"D:\Program Files\GVS\DelsL1.isu" -c"D:\Program
Files\GVS\_ISREG32.DLL""

There should be a UNINST.EXE in that directory. Otherwise simply create a
filegroup that is pointed to <WINDIR> and add the 32-bit uninst.exe in
there. That is a quick fix.

Hi Christine,

I discovered that you have to fill in the company name. Then uninstall
works fine.

Thank you.
