RE: Question regarding problem during uninstall using setup.exe


Thanks for the message.

However, my "packages" did NOT create these directories - I just wish to
mount them, therefore setup should not be deleting them. For example,

I mount C:\Documents and Settings\Alan Miles as /mnt/User. Setup should not
(and does not) delete the files in this sub-directory.

I noticed Christopher Faylor has replied as well, but I haven't had a chance
to review his message. I will do that later, when I have more time.

Setup tries to remove any directories created by packages it installs -
which includes /.

Improvements could be made in this area, yes.
