Problen related to Regedit. Please Reply

I have some problems in uninstalling my product. When i uninstall one of the component , entry in the regedit doent get removed as well as related folder from program files .
To solve this i use the Registry table and RemoveRegistry table . This has solved the service related problem but folders are still there . Also service in services.msi is present and get removed only when system is restarted.
Please tell me how to remove the folders . This is happening only with the components in which services doesnt get removed.
If anyone can help me please reply.

You need to populate the RemoveFile table. You need two entries for each folder that remains behind after installation. One for all the folder's content with *.* wildcard and one for the folder itself.

For exact info on the exact values you fill in this table: search for "RemoveFile table" in the InstallShield 2010 help file.

Hope this helps
