[wix-users] LaunchTarget on uninstall

Why can't the MSI deploying the service be the one to restart the service? Makes no sense to me to launch an application on uninstall, since the intent behind the feature you are using is to launch an app on install/ upgrade, and on remove it shouldn't exist.

HI folks,

Is there anyway to use LaunchTarget on uninstall?

We are using it to restart a service on install, and would like to use it on uninstall as well, but currently the button is disabled ☹
