Hi Emmanuel,

I managed to set the interactive mode off.

A two-lines modifications. This uninstall log library is not so bad
actually...

     # Activating a confirmation when aborting the installation

-    !insertmacro INTERACTIVE_UNINSTALL
+    # Unattended uninstallation
+    !insertmacro UNATTENDED_UNINSTALL

Now, the script seem to only delete the installed files, letting the other
files, and without asking questions...

I think we finally did it...

I'll upload a new installer for others to test...

Regards,
Pierre-Arnaud
