[Qt Installer Framework] Uninstall.exe and installation folder are not removed on uninstall



  • Well, the title says it all. Anyone has any idea why installation folder and uninstall.exe are not removed when I uninstall my app? And this causes the installer to give an error message if the user selects the same folder for re-installing that app.



  • Probably because the uninstaller could not remove himself and so the folder.
    On which operating systems does your app run?



  • Seems like this is kind of a bug or something. I'm on windows and when I manually run uninstall as administrator then everything gets removed perfectly. Take a look at "this link":https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTIFW-447 and let's just wait for the bug to be resolved :)
