  • I don't know if you know this already so here goes. After uninstalling, the environment variables were left alone. The ones that didn't exist before (INCLUDE and LIB come to mind) still exist. The new paths were not removed from PATH either.
    • I noticed this too. INCLUDE/LIB would be easily disposed of but, the paths in PATH might be an issue. Would have to systematically go through the env and search for the ones were added by strawberry and remove them.
    • I think this is a deficiency in the installer.

      From what I can see there is no simple way to auto-magically remove them.

      I'll investigate to see if there's some hooks into the uninstall process later.
      • If you can't get Inno Setup to do what you want then take a look at NSIS [sourceforge.net] (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System). They have lots of documentation [sourceforge.net], tutorials [sourceforge.net] and examples [sourceforget.net]. I used it in the past with someone else's NSIS script and it was a breeze to tweak the script to do what I wanted.
