I haven't tried that yet, though if that's the only solution it's better
How does one let the system know where to find its uninstaller?
I've previously used Wise Install, and provided a shortcut in the Start
menu to uninstall. Wise Install's uninstaller works well from the app
folder, using a method similar to the one I'm doing (but apparently just
different enough that theirs doesn't get error 32 <g>).
I'll look into your suggestion to limit uninstall to the control panel;
any tips on providing the info to the system would be much appreciated
(I'm assuming it's a reg key so it should be easy to turn up somewhere).
In the meantime, if you have a way to allow uninstall to be run directly
from the app's folder that would be great. Even if I tell them to use
the control panel, changes are someone will find the uninstaller and try
to run it directly from Program Files...
