Add-In does not fully uninstall
The registry entry for my add-in is not deleted after uninstalling it.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION
When I uninstall my Add-in (Either through control panel, or via commandline), I notice that the registry entry for the installer can be found in the registry "<projectName>.AddInModule"

This is not breaking anything, or causing us any problems but I want to make sure it's not a symptom of something that could hurt us down the line.

We're using INSTALLAWARE 18 to build our installers. Wix is not an option for us at this point in time.

Hello German,

You need to follow instruction we give in section Creating a Visual Studio Installer Setup Project Manually, see the PDF file in the folder {Add-in Express}\Docs on your development PC. The instruction is given for Visual Studio Installer; you need to translate it to the language of INSTALLAWARE 18.
