Un-installation of running files


How can I remove/delete files that are still running (something like services NOT installed by ServiceControl and ServiceInstall table approach but installed through some CA) during un-installation ???

You can control any service using the ServiceControl table. They don't have to be services installed in your package. Pay attention to the 'Event' column.

You can use VBScript for that.Which can stop that services before un-installation.

Also one idea is to create a custom action that reference to a directory to stop the running file
