As one of our default components, we add the installdir to the path and create a registry key for it. This component is not part of a group. It is included in the primary project componentList.
When I uninstall, I find that the path retains the installdir and the registry key is left behind. Do I have to manually create an uninstall that takes care of these? I haven’t looked into the uninstaller that much, but I assumed that the default would handle this. Was I wrong?

I will paraphrase here, to avoid plaguarizing Bitrock Support. Bitrock intends on adding a setting that will allow you to define if a path and/or registry key will be uninstalled by the automagically created uninstaller.
Until then, the following was added to the preUninstallationActionList to handle this:
They were also kind enough to update the "Uninstaller" section of their docs. I wanted to pass along this useful information to the forum community. Tested and verified the code above. Issue resolved.
