    And the user created file’s path also should be displayed to the user.

    One solution for the deletion of the files created by the application after installation would be the use of FILENULL in the package file. You may go and search with FILENULL in this link: Installing language independent files.

    I'm fairly sure you don't have to delete files that the USER has created - at least in some circumstances. For example, our application allows the user to download files they pay for - it is obviously not correct behaviour to delete such files.

    Is there any way how to delete a directory during the uninstallation process - ignoring what (created in app runtime) is inside the dir?
    Thank you.

    yes if you create some folder or file at run time you have to delete on your own. if you want selective delete then you have to run a application on un-installation time that inturn will remove the files.

    note: leaving files while un-installation might fail symbian sign criteria.
