Installer.OnAfterUninstall Method

Raises the AfterUninstall event.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable Sub OnAfterUninstall( _
   ByVal savedState As IDictionary _
protected virtual void OnAfterUninstall(
 IDictionary savedState
protected: virtual void OnAfterUninstall(
 IDictionary* savedState
protected function OnAfterUninstall(
   savedState : IDictionary


An IDictionary that contains the state of the computer after all the installers contained in the Installers property are uninstalled.


This method is called after the Uninstall methods of all the installers in this instance's InstallerCollection have run.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnAfterUninstall method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:  When overriding OnAfterUninstall in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnAfterUninstall method so that registered delegates receive the event.
