MSI Shared DLL reference count not decrement on upgrade
07/17/2015 3812 views
I have created an msi which places shared DLL file in to the folder "C:\program files\MY Product" it then created the relevant reference keys in
if I uninstall the msi the DLL are removed and the relevent keys deleted.
However if I upgrade the msi it increments the SharedDDLs reg key to 2 this means when I uninstall it doesn't remove the files
Can you please advise how to stop this so the DLL don't increment and the files are removed after uninstall

Where did you sequence RemoveExistingProduct standard action in execute immediate?
Is it sequenced in between, InstallValidate & InstallInitialize
Is it sequenced after InstallFinalize
Is it sequenced after InstallInitialize
