Active sync deinstall

I have made a msi package of microsoft active sync 3.8 and also a msi package of the windows ce drivers. It is working just fine but when uninstalling the app, using the AD the app is hanging. Apperantly the app is asking to remove the synced files from the hdd.
Is there a way to get rid of this message so the app can deinstall. When deinstalling by hand i also get this message and after clicking oke the app deinstall just fine.

Hi Sejacru,

I've had the same issue.
This happens when the file cefstore.dll is beïng unregistered during uninstall.
By installing this application with the ADS, I was 'trapped' to find a way of bypassing the appearance if the message. When the uninstall is triggered by the ADS, it still popup the mentioned box, but doesn't show it. So you have no way to click on a button. This means you are trapped in an endless loop.
If you find a way to get rid if this file by deleting it before the uninstall of ActiveSync starts, the messagebox will not appear. As far as I know the synced files will remain on the local disk.
This did the trick for me. Fortunatly the next version of ActiveSync is MSI... (http://itninja.com/link/microsoft-activesync-4.1-hell)

Thanx for your reply,

I knew that they will come with a msi but according to me, its still beta.
Thats why i want to use the "older version".
I keep testing and if i find something i will let you know
