How to uninstall the deployment by the user

P: n/a
Ray
Dear all,
Now, I have to go to the control panel to remove the installed deployment
manually. Is there any method to generate an uninstall exe for the user to
remove the deployment?
Thanks a lot,
Ray

Hi Ray,

Surely your setup package already contains the uninstall functionality which
by default is called from the Control Panel. Most setups generators allow
you to create a shortcut to it in the Start menu. Check the docs of your
setup generator.

Do you want to add an uninstall link to the start menu?
