Iam copying two files to Windows\Profiles\Music folder in wise package studio and the msi does not have any shortcuts.Using activesetup i can see the files in other users.Iam uninstalling the msi using system context eventhough the files are getting deleted for the logged in user.Could you please explain me what how msi can delete user profile file and there are no custom actions.It is a captured msi.

Answer Summary:
The files will get deleted from the logged in user as the file would be marked as keypath.

Try and set the component that includes the music files to never delete... then on uninstall they will stay.

The files will get deleted from the logged in user as the file would be marked as keypath(correct me here, if i`m wrong). It won`t delete the files from other users though.

I think your right akki.

I'f you want to remove the file from all users, you'd have to script it I guess. You could use DEL /S <filename>, which deletes the specified files from all subdirectories.
