InstallShield automatic script for uninstall no longer works
Posted on 2010-08-31
I've been using InstallShield for years for doing an application install that is relatively straightforward. The install works and hasn't changed much over the years. Recently I noticed that the uninstall stopped working.
When a user runs thru the "remove program" options in the Windows Control Panel it used to go thru whatever automatic script was created by InstallShield to delete all of the files that were installed during my installation (which is exactly what I want). Now, instead of doing an uninstall the installer gets relaunched. I'm sure the reasoning is so that a user can add/change/modify installation option. But I don't need or want that. I simply need it to do what it did before, which is to remove the application.
I'm assuming I set some option somewhere that caused this but I've searched all thru InstallShield options I could think of and I can't find what I might have set.
I'm running InstallShield 2008 and this is an InstallScript type project.
Anyone know what I might have tweaked that caused this to happen?
Note, though my installer is straightforward it is complicated enough that I'm not going to switch to another installer application so the "switch to installer ..." is not an option.
