Subject Re: [ApacheDS] [Release] corrupting Windows when uninstalling!
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2008 15:32:27 GMT
Sorry for the inconvenience Mathijs... :(

I created a separate issue for you problem as it is concerning another type
of installer:
    https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1188

I'm afraid this bug is related to framework we use to build the Windows
installer: NSIS.

I'll have a look as soon as possible.

Regards,
Pierre-Arnaud
