QuestionWhen I uninstall with our application running, the folder that contained the app is not removed after reboot. Now I know the documentation for the RemoveFolders action says that if the folder is not empty it won’t remove the folder. However after the reboot, the folder is empty, shouldn’t it be scheduled for deletion after reboot as well?
AnswerThere is a known issue when a folder held in use (that is empty) and not deleted during uninstall.
