Thanks for the input Mark, Chip.

I haven't tried that yet, though if that's the only solution it's better 
than nothing.

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...
