During my install I'm creating a user account (postgres). Then When uninstalling I'm using the UserMgr plugin to delete a user account.
User account is correctly deleted but the user home directory remain and the next time i install the software i have a new home directoy named postgres.%computer name%.001 ...
I made a lot of search on the web to find a way do delete this remaining directory and ended with the only solution that is to retrieve the user home directory thanks to the ProfileImagePath registry keys.
But to do so I need to retreive first the user profil SID, then go to the registry and look to ProfileImagePath keys.
here is an exemple made with win32 c# (i guess)
key = "SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\ProfileList\\"
usr = 'some_user'
sec = Win32::Security::SID.open(usr)
key += sec.to_s
Win32::Registry::HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.open(key) do |reg|
to do the same with C++ win32 code i need to use LookupAccountName then convert SID to string ...
do you have better solution ? or is nsis providing something for that ?
