Uninstall issue


I have, I think, a beginer issue.
I have created an installscript project.
I put my exe in files to be installed (using Add Files).
My exe has dependencies.
When I install the program, installscript correctly install all the dependencies and my exe.

The problem appears when I uninstall.
I uninstall the program using "Add/Remove program" of windows.
Then many of the Dll of the program and the program itself are still in the directory after uninstallation.
I can see some of the Dll has been removed.

May I know what I have done wrong in order to make uninstallation works completely ?

I can confirm this problem does not concern files created after installation. The files which are not deleted has been created during the installation and automatically by the installer.

Thanks for help,
