TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
There is one situation where you do want to send the FTS and GID files: If
you want the users to uninstall the application completely. If
UninstallShield sees files in the directory that were not part of the
original build, it won't uninstall them. And the Uninstall is not complete.
In that case, you do want to ship them but they can actually be a 1k empty
file with the right name. Then they are created correctly when the user does
it but the uninstall also works correctly.
