Hi,

I've just started using install simple for distributing Add-ins for various software.

The problem I'm having is that the installer appears to insist upon creating an uninstall
executable, which seems to cause problems in some cases.

I really like your product, but it would be helpful to make generating "Uninstall.exe" an option rather than a requirement.

So... that is my wishlist request. Very Happy


Take care and great work!

Hello Max,

I read your message several days ago, but has detained the answer.

We had already thought about it, but not implemented, because believed that there are more important features that need to be implemented .

Uninstall program - element of installers. Therefore, for simplification we did not create the possibility of setting uninstaller.

Now we prepare to release a new version of the program.
This opportunity will be considered by us, but I can't promise the new version will have this feature.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know...

Best Regards,
Vladislav Biryukov

Thank you for your reply Vladislav, I appreciate it!

I understand that my request is likely not a priority and if it doesn't make it into February's
update, I totally understand as there is not a lot of time between now and then.

Some changes are easier to implement than others and I had hoped perhaps this one would
not be very time consuming. Having been written in Macro Assembler Language though, I
have little concept on what goes into making a change of that nature.

Install-Simple is still very useful to me and I'm happy to have found it.
Thank you so much for your efforts!

Sincerely,
MaxG

I would welcome this feature very much, because I use InstallSimple exclusively to install portable apps.
I promised the users that my software never touches the registry.
Up until now, I apologized for the one exception of the uninstall program registration, but I cannot sell this situation forever.
Also, when a portable app is moved, the registered uninstall.exe can no longer be found, so is worthless.
So please make the uninstaller optional.
Thanks a lot!

I keep getting virus warnings about the Uninstall when deploying applications on Win7. However the InstallSimple 2.7 folder seems clean. Please fix or provide option to levae out Unistall.
