I use the Add Action button in the Sequence / Install list, but i don't find any Create Uninstall Action.

If you don't see the action in the list of actions that you can add, it might be because the action is already present in your project.

Here's what the Create Uninstaller action looks like in a sample project:


Here's what the action list looks like in a project in which I deleted the Create Uninstaller action:

Create Uninstall found in iap_xml file but not in Designer

I found in the XML file the tag :

....

but in the designer i don't find it.
If i delete the tag in the xml and reopen the project, now i can add Create Uninstaller Action;)
But may be it is not the best solution :
1) Is there a way to find this action in the action list with the designer (function like search - action - Create Uninstaller) ?
2) is it legal to remove the tag in the xml ? can thet introduce some other troubles ?

If you have some idea, you are welcome

Can you attach a copy of your project (one where you haven't modified the XML), and maybe someone can take a look at it and advise you how to proceed? Thanks!

Re: Migrating From IA 2009 to IA 2014 - How to create uninstall action

It looks like your project already includes an uninstaller at:
$USER_INSTALL_DIR$\jviews-charts88\UninstallerData\Uninstall $PRODUCT_NAME$

See the screen shot below.

So, the next step you'd need to do is to add the InstallAnywhere Uninstall Component to your project. Next, associate your Uninstall Launcher that's already in your project with that component that you just created.

Once you do that, your project should be fine.

OK, thank's, I have found it.
May be, one of my trouble was that the icon was customized.

So now, as you say, lets go to the next steps...
