Uninstall Question

Recommended Posts

Here is the question, I have created a couple of addons but have changed the default program group shortcuts on the start menu to a custom folder ie

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\My Programs\Utilities\Program Name

So how do I remove the shortcuts when the program is uninstalled. :blink: I could change the default install directory, but is there another way, now that I have created the addons?

Thanx inadvance ;)

You can use DelFiles then to delete your shortcuts, this will use the same section used for CopyFiles to locate and delete the files

Thanx for your reply ricktendo64, but I am a bit unsure... :blink:

this is my inf below, Not the one for UltraISO, bjfrog was just showing me how he did it in his addon.

Can I still use the DelFiles even if I am using the programs uninstall & where would I put it?

Thanx...

Rick,Thank you very much!

if the uninstall executable path like this

%16422%\%Prog_Dir%\%Sub_Dir%\uninst.exe

Does I write that line like this ?

[RunUninst]
""""%16422%\%Prog_Dir%\%Sub_Dir%\uninst.exe""" /SILENT"

or still write like that?

[RunUninst]
"""%16422%\%Prog_Dir%\%Sub_Dir%\uninst.exe"" /SILENT"

I mean how many pairs quotation marks added to the executable path are decided by the deepth of dir or only need two pairs .

If mine does not execute the program go ahead and add another quote, if it worked your way thats then thats the correct amount of quotes ;)

Quotes may only be needed btw for the second runpost/presetupcommand actually, this should work just fine

%16422%\%Prog_Dir%\%Sub_Dir%\uninst.exe /SILENT;quotes not needed in the first path

%16422%\%Prog_Dir%\%Sub_Dir%\uninst.exe /SILENT """%16422%\%Prog_Dir%\%Sub_Dir%\Example.ini""";quotes are needed in second path

OH and the quotes are only needed/used for paths with spaces in them, example

"Program(space)Files\etc"
