[C] Uninstall not removing all directories

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a problem and will post it soon. While doing that I wanted to recreate the problem without previous installs messing things up. What I found was that after uninstalling the following directories still existed, and because of that it affected settings that control how CDBurnerXP operates. Only after removing them did I get what seemed like a fresh install. The directories are:

- C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Canneverbe Limited

- C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Canneverbe Limited

I'll suggest that during uninstall it either remove them or ask about removing them.

Files created after the installation of CDBurnerXP will indeed not be removed, and there is no such option in InnoSetup available without coding something myself. I don't like the idea very much, since I cannot now what data the user might have put into these folders (maybe accidentially).
