Hi,

I have development a Wise Installer MSI to create a database, it runs a long transact SQL script as a SQL Scripts Action. This SQL creates a database and populates it with table and view on those tables. Fine.


But when I unistall, it leaves the database behind. I would like to uninstall to drop the database.

I watched your video on custom actions, and I believe I can write a Windows App to connect and drop the database when uninstall is requested.

If this the best solution to dropping the database ? Or is there a better cleaner way to to it?


thanks, Adrian

You won't need to develop an application to do this: surely a simple SQL script executed with OSQL (or whatever the database client's query tool is called) will suffice? http://sqlserver2000.databases.aspfaq.com/how-do-i-drop-a-sql-server-database.html
