Removing the Folders and Files by running Uninstall

i've got an application where the Application exe at runtime will create some files within a folder.
When installed using the setup file created from Package and Deployment wizard, the application gets installed and works fine.
The problem is with the uninstallation of the application, where only the files that are been previously copied by the setup are removed.

I need to remove all the folders and files that are created by the Application at runtime that will remain in the expected path.
What i thought was, to alter the setup script so as to remove all the subfolders and files within it when uninstalling the application.
But how can i do this? Any other Setup makers to solve my problem? Please help me

you can use the Installshield wizard to create a setup & then the install shield wizard shall be able to delete the file.

In case u still want to use the Packaging & deployment wizard then you have to change the code of the wizard which is available in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard\Setup1 directory.
