Uninstaller hangs in Windows 7

Hi there. I tried out i2p a couple of months ago, and I've tried to uninstall it several times since (I'm on Windows 7 x64.) The trouble is, the uninstaller simply appears to not do anything. I hit uninstall, with or without the "Force deletion" box ticked, click uninstall, and.. nothing. It'll sit there, uninstalling, but to all appearances, doing nothing for hours. I've tried disabling, and stopping the I2P service beforehand.

I checked in a fix for this which will be in new installations as of 0.9.1-13.

To work around it you can open uninstall_i2p_service_winnt.bat and remove the two lines at the bottom

if "%2"=="--nopause" goto :eof

The Izpack config file had the following set:

            <executable targetfile="$INSTALL_PATH/uninstall_i2p_service_winnt.bat" stage="uninstall" os="windows">
                    <arg value="$INSTALL_PATH\wrapper.config" />
                    <arg value="--nopause" />

That worked in Windows XP but apparently not in Windows 7.
