Register an uninstall app for custom components using IEAK 11

Register the uninstall apps for any custom components you’ve included in your Internet Explorer 11 package. Registering these apps lets your employees remove the components later, using Uninstall or change a program in the Control Panel.

Register your uninstallation program

While you’re running your custom component setup process, your app can add information to the subkeys in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ApplicationName registry key, registering your uninstallation program.

IE11 also uses this registry key to verify that the component installed successfully during setup.

Subkey Data type Value
DisplayName string Friendly name for your uninstall app. This name must match your Uninstall Key in the Add a Custom Component page of the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 11. For more info, see the Custom Components page.
UninstallString string Full command-line text, including the path, to uninstall your component. You must not use a batch file or a sub-process.
