    Running a file only on uninstall, not while updating

    Hi all,

    I use a FR,RR line in the pkg file that runs a cleanup utility which asks the user if user generated files should be deleted (to comply with symbiansigned criteria). Now, this utility is also run when updating the application, not only when uninstalling. Is there a way to ask only when uninstalling?

    Thanks for your help,

    Chris

    Updating(Replacing) your application will eventually turns out to be uninstallation sequence. Hence it behaves correctly.

    Note that SymbianSigned criteria offers an exception for the case UNI-08(the one you are following, I believe) that your application can leave behind files within 100 KB size. If this is the case then there should not be any problem with SymbianSigned process.

    hmm, that's what I feared My files will be more than 100kB, so the exception is not an option. If noone else has got an idea for a hack to detect that we're currently updating and not uninstalling, I guess I'll have to phrase the text such that the user is not unsettled...
