In case you have a completely empty desktop folder with the OOo link and you uninstall OOo: The removing of the OOo link removes also desktop folder. It seems that no one has been seriously harmed because none has a really empty desktop folder.

Accepting. Trying to find a fix in cws native357.

This seems to be the typical Windows Installer behavior. The Installer "knows" the directory from the table "Directory". And if it is empty, it is removed during uninstallation (why leaving an empty directory?). The workaround would be, to create a temporary file in this folder during uninstallation, but I think for such a process, this problem is not big enough. Setting target 3.x.
