Uninstall App Failure

Have a Windows Forms app built with VS.NET 2003 and installed with Setup
project - all went well.
Needed to upgrade the app so removed it from Add/Remove Programs (this on a
XP Pro SP2 workstation) Result - app removed but so were ALL file
associations - only thing I could find usable was Command Line in Start-Run.
Needed to reinstall OS with Repair. Thinking this was a freak machine problem
I completed upgrades with XCopy and that was OK.
Tried again yesterday on a newly rebuilt machine (reformatted / XP Pro SP2 /
no internet connection and very few apps loaded) Uninstall resulted in exact
same result.
Tried on another workstation - W2k SP4 - same result - needed to run Repair.
Can't find reference to this "feature" in other posts - please help!!
