When a user un-installs any sub-components, I need to test for what components remains and re-configure the root component with information about the available sub-components. InstallBuilder only invokes the project-level <postuninstallationactionlist> action list after the project is un-installed. Is there an action list that's invoked after any of the components are un-installed, regardless of which one is un-installed?

Thanks. Re having the sub-components initiate re-configuration, it's possible but impractical for this package. There are six subcomponents that would have to determine the state of the other sub-components. If a user removes two sub-components at the same time, then each one would have to repeat the work. For now, it's easier to live with an outdated configuration until the application itself generates a runtime error after an un-install. Thanks again.

This is not currently possible but we have added your request to our bug tracking system. As a workaround, would be possible to make the uninstalled component reconfigure the root component? For example, if you store the list of components in a text file, each uninstalled component could remove itself. Would that be an option?
