Why WiX?
Why are my folders not being removed during uninstallation?

Folders are not removed during uninstallation because of one of the following reasons:

  • The RemoveFolders action is missing from the execute sequence table when both the CreateFolder table and CreateFolders action are used.
  • The folders were not created by Windows Installer, therefore it will not remove them unless told to do so.
  • Resources still exist in the folder.
