How do people Uninstall their program (not Autoit)

5 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

I learnt how to do some codes in VBA for access about 2 months ago and then learnt I had to distribute the "front end" of my Access Data Base. So that is how I have come to you guys - but also means I know almost nothing. I am sure I will have more questions.

I have created an "install.exe" which takes from a network a number of files to the C driver of a computer. I thought it would be cool to have an "unistall.exe" in there as well. So now in C drive there is an uninstall.exe

Only problem is that when you run the "unistall.exe" it works perfectly except cannot delete itself or the folder it is in.

So how do I clean up the computer?

I do not want to touch the registry.

I could I suppose run the uninstall from the network, but that would be only if there is not some other way.

When I install (non-)autoit at a third party, I use NSIS to create an install script. An uninstall is also generated to clean up the mess (as well as itself.)

The question was how we people do this, so I hope you don't mind that my solution is not autoit related


In the beginning there was nothing and then even that exploded - anonymous

Thank you to both of you for the quick answers. I meant both as I was using searches such as "uninstall scripts" and not getting far so I was not sure if Autoit would do it or I would use something else.
