    Uninstall files created after install

    Hi There:

    I'm using Install Creator build #24 and everything installs just fine. When my application is run, it creates some data files (that don't exist when the program is first installed). Upon uninstall, the files that my app made don't get uninstalled, nor does the parent folder.

    Forgive this thread if you've answered this elsewhere, I couldn't find it. The other thing that occured to me is that what I'm looking for (essentially to have the parent folder and all sub folders and files cleanly removed) may exist in Install Creator Pro.

    Thanks a ton

    Jonny

    Yes, this option is in Install Creator Pro : you can specify a list of extensions to remove from the install directory, for example *.tmp;*.xxx, or *.* if you want to remove everything.

    What about installing dummy files for the one that are created by your app? Uninstall shield then knows that it should delete the files ...

    Hi:

    Thanks for your reply. Yes dummy files crossed my mind however our app creates many date stamped files and also downloads and creates unknown files (with known extensions) over the web thus the dummy idea won't fly.

    Having the ability to delete the files by extension on the other hand will work so we'll be looking at the pro version.

    Thanks again

    Jonny
