Using Wise Installer Editor in Wise Package Studio, I am trying to add/install files and registry keys to a target pc when i uninstall my msi. Sounds simple and probably is but i cant find a way to do it. I have tried putting the files and registry keys into a separate component and use the following condition REMOVE~="ALL" to only install it when the msi is uninstalled. This doesnt work. Any ideas? I know i can use custom actions to call a separate program to install files but is there a better way to do it?

Bad news buddy.

You will need to write a custom action to write the registry keys you require, and condition this custom action to run on uninstall.
