Subject: [wix-users] Uninstall is not working

The e-mail below is from an external source.  Please do not open attachments or click links from an unknown or suspicious origin.

I have managed to sort out many aspects of writing a custom bootstrapper.  The concepts are largely still foreign (mostly in that, keeping track of the flow of all of the events is not yet second nature).

I'm making do at the moment with a couple of columns of checkboxes to allow selection of features, with code behind to validate.  Install and Modify is mostly working at the present, but, uninstall is not working at all.

I set the launchaction to Uninstall and set each selected feature to have a state of Absent.  The MSI never even seems to be launched (no log is ever created for uninstall).

What is the proper sequence of actions and states to accomplish Uninstall?
