    Is there going to be an Uninstaller for the web package or a selective uninstaller?

    Thanks for the feedback.  We currently do not have plans to support uninstallation in this first version of Web PI. 

    To help me understand what you'd expect to see though, would you want to be able to have a single click uninstall for all of the Web Platform products or would you prefer to just individually choose items to uninstall?

    I personally would like to find a way to un-install the installer itself - after I ran it the first time, I received a mysterious parser error - and that's as far as I can get regardless of what I try. I can't seem to find a log file or information on where this thing resides on my machine... I assume reinstalling or clearing some cache file will fix the error... ?

    I am actually looking at wanting to uninstall individual item or the whole package. There are times when items included in the package need to be removed from our development systems when we want to vary configurations. Other times when troubleshooting it would be convenient to be able to remove packaged items in an automated manner if they can be cleanly removed. Otherwise we find we have to do a lot of "manual clean up and de-install" activity, if we miss one or two variables has resulted in errors that we have to spend time tracking down.

    We just released our final release for our v1 for the Web Platform Installer.  Please let us know if you continue to see the parsing error you mentioned earlier.

    Thank you for the feedback and information on uninstall.  This helps give us context as we think about future versions.
