Launching uninstaller takes a pretty long time for our app (more than 5 seconds), and that is obviously confusing the end-user - it doesn't appear as starting after the click, and so the user may make a few more attempts to launch the same uninstaller. So the questions: 1. Is it possible to show a splash screen to inform a user that the uninstaller is being started? 2. How to improve the startup time?

The uninstaller start time has been improved with InstallBuilder 8.0. Does it happen with InstallBuilder 8 or an older version of InstallBuilder?
Does it happen with your installer only or also projects such as the empty sample installer also take a lot of time to start?
Is the system running an anti-virus? The issue may be anti-virus scanning the uninstaller binary prior to running it. Does disabling anti-virus and similar applications change startup time in any way?

Are their any more updates to this topic. We are also seeing 5+ startup times for the uninstaller on windows using installbuilder 8+.
