Seems like you have some 300k files which Windows Installer takes long to process. Try using my WiX extension, which can delete files without the processing overhead. https://www.nuget.org/packages/PanelSwWixExtension/ Element 'DeletePath'- should be something like:     <PanelSW:DeletePath Id="_1" Path="[DeleteMeFolder]">REMOVE~="ALL"</PanelSW:DeletePath> -- Nir Bar, Independent WiX Expert.
