    thumbs.db files will not be removed - FIX HERE

    Hi all,

    I had some issues with a thumbs.db which did not uninstall or get removed using the "Additional files to remove" feature of ICP build 32. You read my issue here

    Note: My uninstaller was a patch uninstaller which updated the original uninstaller .. not sure if this is a bug or not but there is a way round it

    The fix is simple.

    Include the thumbs.db file within your installation making sure it installs and the uninstaller will then remove it when you run the uninstall.exe

    Hope this helps others as this has caused me real frustration over the past two days.

    PS: Yves not sure if this is a bug

    Hmm... you shouldn't have to do that, the "additional files to remove" option should work with these files too. I'll take a look.

    As I said Yves .. not sure if it is a bug.

    Just remember this was in a situation where I developed a patch and the ORIGINAL uninstaller was being updated

    i.e. The patch.exe did not have a uninstall.exe ... it updated the original uninstaller.exe
