Restore Point Description Text

When an application calls the SRSetRestorePoint function, it can provide any text as a description for the restore point; however, the following table shows the recommended description text.

System modificationRestore point typeDescription
Application installationAPPLICATION_INSTALLInstalled AppName
Application modification (add/remove features)MODIFY_SETTINGSConfigured AppName
Application removalAPPLICATION_UNINSTALLRemoved AppName
Device driver installationDEVICE_DRIVER_INSTALLInstalled DriverName


Installers, such as Windows Installer and InstallShield, use these conventions for the description text:

  • The product name follows the verb; for example, Installed AppName.
  • The product name can be used alone (AppName) or the product name and the company name may both be used (MyCompany AppName).
