Hello,

After making a msi, i added a file. When uninstalling, the file stays on the system. How do i tell the msi to remove the file. I think this is an easy question but cann't find it.

many thanx

It should remove automatically.. check the component installing the file doesn't have a permenant attribute set.

Always validate and fix any ICE errors in u're package, if all else fails you can use the remove file table.

Have in mind that if you use the remove file table this will not work for files located within other users "User Profile", but that you already knew ;)
