    Hi FNE,
    I am sending my App into my own created folder(by group_name),and i know it should be remove during uninstalling,otherwise signing will be fail.and it is not going after uninstall the app, i think this is an issue with 3rd edition ,so i have to handle it during uninstalling but how could i get this folder for deleting.
    Regards

    If you are talking about group folder uin the menu, then you can not delete the folder, since it is not controlled by you. I'm rather sure it should also be ok with signing.

    thanx,last night i have tested your Y-Browser and its also leav the folder and its ok .
    But here ,i am bit more carzy about to know the reason behind this things.
    according to signing (UNI - 08)"The application should uninstall itself cleanly."

    Re: Delete Localized folder

    All you do in your application is to say: when installed my application should go in the application group X.

    It is a system application that handles your request and creates a folder to represent that group, if it does not exist already. Therefore, it is that system application that should delete the folder when no longer needed. If that does not happen it is not your fault. However, as a best practice you should restrict yourself to installing the applications into phone's predefined groups (Games, Music, Media, Tools ... ) and do not create a new group for each and every application.

    To be noted that the folder is not in fact a directory, it is just a logical representation of a application group in the Menu application, so this doesn't fall under the UNI-08 test criteria which deals with cleaning up the file system upon uninstall.

    Also, one of the problems with custom applications groups is that they are not really localized, therefore your post's title is a bit off track :)
