It's very convenient to access installer variables during the installations. When the installation is finished, these variables are saved in uninstall.dat file. Is it possible to access/modify these variables after the installation is completed?

The format of uninstall.dat file is internal and it is not possible to read and/or modify the values of the InstallBuilder variables from it. However, you can store the files as INI or XML files. For example:
This way you can store the values you want to access from your application.
You may also read some of the variables by doing:
This way the application can read and write the variables and installer will read the values before uninstallation and running actions related to uninstallation.
