Dynamic linked files not removed after upgrade is uninstalled

Hello there!
I am currently using Installshield 2014 and project type is basic MSI project and I'm having problems while using the Dynamic Linked files.

Sequence to reproduce problem is as follows:

1. Install version 1.0.0. (This version includes 13 files, which are the ones availables at the repository).

2. Remove one file from the repository.

2. Upgrade to 1.1.0 using major upgrade. (12 files have been updated).

3. Uninstall 1.1.0.

4. The one fileswhich was dynamically added on version 1.0.0. has not been removed.



Any thoughts ?

Thanks folks

Hello there,
the only approach that worked for me was to completely uninstall the previous version (1.0.0 and all its 13 files) before installing the newer version (1.0.1 and all its 12 files).

Doing it this way, it seems to work but it's not what I was looking for. If you can find another approach, let me know Smiley Happy

All the best.

It's not what I was looking for, but so far so good.
