Hello, everyone.

I have this application MS VS 2010 Tools for Office Runtime x86, the application installs well but upon uninstall, i found out that there were files deleted in C:\Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727.32

I saw there's entry in MsiAssembly table and I guess the application uses this table and a custom action to install MsiPublishAssemblies and MsiUnpublishAssemblies for uninstall.

What to do not to delete the files on C:\Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727.32 that are not part of the application.

 Sample deleted files

  • I can't work out why a package would be deleting files that it hadn't installed, unless the deletion were by Custom Action....
  • I figure out that it happens on install. :(
    I checked the custom action but I can't identify who handle the deletion of these files.
  • Are there any entries in the RemoveFile table?
