  1. VB.NET Outlook Addin - Windows Installer Custom Action Error on Uninstall


    Hello!


    Im trying to perform a simple removal of a registry key when i uninstall my outlook addin created with vb.net... I can run the script from the explorer and it removes the registry key as expected.


    But when i add it to the setup project under Uninstall on Custom Actions, after i install it and try to uninstall to see if it performs properly i get the following:

    VB.NET Outlook Addin - Windows Installer Custom Action Error on Uninstall b9c7900d-2f81-465f-b2ce-84f3439ba8ce?upload=true.png

    It doesnt even let me uninstall the addin... and it doesnt remove from the registry.

    The script is a rather simple:


    on error resume next


    DeleteKey="""HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\VB and VBA Program Settings\CUSTPR"""

    Set Shell = WScript.CreateObject"WScript.shell"

    Shell.run "Reg Delete " & DeleteKey & " /f"


    if Err.number<>0 then msgbox Err.description & " " & Err.number


    It seems that it is unable to create the Shell object when performing the uninstall.

    How can i solve this?


    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    • Restart
    • Reg clean threw CCleaner 4 times, every time had a issue.
    • Verify that all .net up to 3.5 sp1 was installed and been verified to be working
    • went to website
    • saw a action to "run test" to see if system is compatible.
    • Allowed Firewall/ windows defender to run said program (says it's a low grade trojan
    • Went to issued program and opened..
    • Worked..

    lol... oh, how stupid I was.. I all ways run reg cleaner on new os's... My mind is losing myself... *Roll :roll:

    How to install outlook express on windows xp with explorer 8?

    This was going to be my suggestion as well. I just wasn't sure if it worked with XP. It is definitely way better than Outlook Express, and I actually prefer it to regular Outlook as well.

    VB.NET Outlook Addin - Windows Installer Custom Action Error on Uninstall

    How to install outlook express on windows xp with explorer 8?

    This is an awkward problem to solve and one I don't think is worth the time and effort.

    The OP would be better off either using a modern webmail service like gmail or outlook.com or using a modern email client like Windows Live Mail like FX-GMC suggested or Thunderbird from Mozilla. If nothing else, Outlook Distress was notorious for corrupting its data files and losing all your email in one easy step. Not worth it.
