  • Uninstall does not remove %AppDir%

    I don't know exactly what I changed in my SF6.0.0.4 project, but the uninstall does no longer remove the %AppDir% directory.

    All its entries have been removed except the "iun6002.exe".

    Its not very funny, when users complain about incomplete uninstalls.

    Even after adding the command "Remove directory(%AppDir%)" an the end of the uninstall - section after uninstalling, nothing changes.

    Do you have some idea ?

    In the meantime, I found some more info what I did:

    I added a command "Execute(%AppDir%\someBat)" with "wait for program to finish" checked. When I add this step to Actions - After install, then the uninstall does not remove %AppDir%.

    When I add this command to Actions - Before Install, then the uninstall works properly but here my problem is, that the file is not yet installed).

    Maybe this helps.

    Does that batch file create any files or folders beneath %AppDir%?

    Remember that the Remove Directory action will only work if the folder is empty.

      No, no files are generated beneath %AppDir%.

      In my case, the bat-file is simple and only contains a call to the Oracle SQL Loader. It contains a command like
      "sqlldr silent=(ALL) parfile=%1".

      The loader generates one or two files within %AppDir%, which are removed by the setup already during installation.
