Description

Moin

Installed Syndie 1.104b-6-rc 64bit on windows 7 64bit.
Now I choosed the menu entry "deinstall syndie" and explicit allowed "remove all from \program files\".
But after the deinstaller was done, I still got .syndie directory in my user profile folder, also syndie directory was still inside of C:\program files\ with all binaries.

This is expected. Uninstallers usually do not remove profile directories.

also syndie directory was still inside of C:\program files\ with all binaries.

This OTOH is not. The problem is that the uninstaller does not request elevated permissions and silently fails. If you run the uninstaller with an elevated CMD prompt using java -jar "\Program Files\Syndie\Uninstaller\uninstall.jar" it'll work.

Perhaps updating our Izpack will solve this, or maybe there's a way to set the uninstaller with our current version to run with admin rights.

Maybe we can add a checkmark and function "also remove my data with uninstall".
