Our installation leaves behind 30mgs worth of MSI files under the C:\windows\downloaded installations folder each time an installation is run, and the uninstall never removes them. Any ideas? Note, these installation are being launched from another machine/location on our LAN. While this might be the cause and it might be saving these files in case we need to uninstall offline, we do not want these files saved and we need them removed upon uninstall because they are going on a windows XP embedded system with limited resources. How can we do that?
