For testing I installed my product multiple times into different directories. When I try to uninstall them almost simultaneously, only one is launched. Is this expected?

This also happens to products installed by different installers.

[Edit] Actually the limit is three. Previous I had two hanging uninstall running, so it reduced to one. But still why the limitation?

There should be no such limitation.

Are you uninstalling by running uninstall.exe manually or by running it from Add/Remove Programs / Programs and Features?

Is it happening on Windows or other platform? Also, what operating system version is it?

I'm running uninstall.exe manually, I just tested on Windows 7, haven't tested it on Linux. I'm using installbuilder for Qt.

This is a bug in InstallBuilder. It will be fixed in next release, which is planned for later this week, but please contact us for a build with the fix if you need it sooner.
