    The <addDirectoriesToUninstaller> action can only delete files registered at build time. It is however possible to use <addFilesToUninstaller> for that purpose. If this action is used with directories, the uninstaller will delete them regardless of the changes in its contents:


    Also please note that the added directories must exists at the time the action is executed or it will be skipped. The <postInstallationActionList>for example is executed after the installation but before the creation of the uninstaller.

    You can find more information on these subjects in the following sections of our manual:
