Question
How do I remove a directory from my Windows Installer-based installation?

Answer
To remove a directory with Wise for Windows Installer or the Wise Package Studio applications, add the directory to the RemoveFile table in the Setup Editor section, leaving the table's Filename field blank.

The easiest way to do it is to copy the entry for the file in the directory you want to remove, by right clicking on the row and selecting Copy, then Paste.  Then clear out the filename entry in the new row.

You will need to do this for each directory and sub-directory that needs to be removed.
