Hello group,

I'm using INNO to install or uninstall an application I have written.
However, I don't know how to add uninstall options to my Program Group in START as well.

Currently user must go to the program folder to and then uninstall folder to run uninstall command.

I will appreciate it if you could let me know how I can add this option to Program group.

regards,
ak

This is what I have done:

[Icons]
Name: "{group}\UnInstall MyApp"; Filename: "{app}\uninstall\unins000.exe"

and works fine. Is there a better approach?

You can also use the {uninstallexe}  contstant instead of the "{app}\uninstall\unins000.exe" for the filename.  This protects you if you have multiple uninsXXX.exe files in the same directory. So you would use something like:
[Icons]
Name: "{group}\UnInstall MyApp"; Filename: "{uninstallexe} "
