    Create an Uninstall Shortcut in the StartMenu....

    I met the problem few days ago. i searched the internet and found a very good solution for it.

    i found quiet a number of VB users wonder how to do it also, so i would like to share it here, since i got a lot of help in this forum.

    Add the fowllowing commands in the SETUP.LST
    under [IconGroups] -- [App Name]

    Icon5=$(WinPath)\ST6UNST.EXE -n "$(AppPath)ST6UNST.LOG"
    Title5=Uninstall MyApp
    5 is the sequence number in my IconGroupsC you can change it base on the sequence of your project icongroups.
    MyApp is your project name.

    If you use Visual Studio Installer, you just need to create an
    Uninstall.bat file.

    Add the executed command in the Uninstall.bat file

    C:\WINNT\system32\MsiExec.exe /I{E49E6717-428A-42BA-BC76-A7D1622238CA}


    "C:\WINNT\system32\" is system32 file in your local PC. (Depending on which OS used in your PC)

    "E49E6717-428A-42BA-BC76-A7D1622238CA" is the product code of ur application. To get the product code:
    Launch the your application's *.wip file, under Project Menu, view App Properties, click Product Information tab, you can find the Product code.

    Add the Uninstall.bat file in the Application Folder, after that you can create the Uninstall ShortCut under the User's Start Menu Folder.
