If the keys the installer created and any data in or under them are unchanged and the same user is uninstalling they ought to be removed.

Subject: [wix-users] Uninstall user settings

I have an application which creates registry entries under HKCU and my QA people are complaining that uninstalling the app doesn't remove the registry entries. Is there a (standard) way of  handling this or is it just a case of "that's how Windows (Installer) works, live with it"?
