Hi all,

I have a problem when i try to uninstall a nested msi, the main msi uninstalls correctly but the other it seems is uninstall but folders and files are not remove from the computer. I write the uninstallation CA code that try to uninstall it.

Product Code: {XXXX...XXXX}
Properties Settings: ALLUSERS=[ALLUSERS] ADDLOCAL=ALL
Return Processing: Synchronous (Check exit code)
Execution Scheduling: Always execute
Install Exec Sequence: After InstallValidate
Install Exec Condition: Not Installed AND REMOVE="ALL"

I look for the solution in internet, but all seems is correct i don´t now where is the error, if someone can help me, lots of thanks [;)]

The main question is "seems to be uninstalled"?, verify if the uninstallation was succesful or not.
The reason for that files/folders are still on the pc can be a bad created msi file or they have been created when using the program.

When I said "it seems to unisntall correctly" I want to say that in Control Panel, add/remove programs, the nested application is not showed, and when i try to uninstall any error is showed.
The application don´t create any file because is a test that only copy one file in a folder created during installation.

Thanks a lot.
