    Another thing smells - NT8 detritus.

    1. Install NT8 to any non-default location.
    2. Start NT8.
    3. Close NT8.
    4. Uninstall NT8.


    The bin64 directory is left behind.

    Again, this does not happen if one installs to the default location.

    Edit: This happens even if one does not actually start NT8. Essentially, in this situation:
    1. Install NT8 to any non-default location.
    2. Oops, wrong location from my typo, so uninstall NT8.

    Hello koganam,

    Thanks for the post!

    I was able to replicate what you're seeing, however I was able to delete the 'bin64' folder manually (by clicking to highlight the folder and the pressing delete from my keyboard).

    Are you able to remove the folder manually?

      Yes I am, but that is not really the point, is it? When installed to the default location, NT removes itself cleanly, not expecting me to do manual cleanup after it removes itself. NT should always remove itself cleanly, or at any event, in the same manner, no matter where NT is installed.

      Do you really believe that all your users are savvy enough to be doing Operating System and Disk cleanup after they uninstall NT?

        Sorry for the miscommunication. Right Koganam this appears like a clear bug to me since in principle we should be cleaning up no matter where it's installed. We will get it reported and looked into.

        Thanks for letting us know.
