InstallAnywhere Windows-Uninstall Registry Entry

Jump to solution

Hi.
I recently added an Uninstaller to my InstallAnywhere2020 project, and now after every Installation i  find that InstallAnywhere made a Registry Entry for my uninstaller under

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall


How do i prevent this ?

I could maybe try to delete the registry entry after installation manually, but i would prefer to not have it created in the first place.

Thanks for your help.

Hi  @jakobsachs ,

InstallAnywhere variable $REGISTER_UNINSTALLER_WINDOWS$ can be used to achieve this.
Setting the value of this variable to 'false'  will prevent making registry entry for the Uninstaller.

Add  'Set InstallAnywhere Variable' action in Sequence->Pre-install
and set
Variable Name : $REGISTER_UNINSTALLER_WINDOWS$
Set value to : false
