I tested the latest Lilypond 2.9.16 for Windows and found out that it is not correctly uninstalled. After uninstalling it the following folders remain:


and its subfolders. The installation directory should completely be removed.

With Lilypond 2.9.18 also the folder

\usr\var remains.f

I've switched on logging for the Mingw installer. Can you (un)install 2.9.18 with /s when it comes out? This will generate an installation log, which will hopefully provide some clues.

I did this. The logfile is attached. The problem is that the folder

\usr\etc can't be deleted because the file "fontconfig.reloc" is in use. I get an eror message that a program is using it and that the file could therefore not be deleted.
The same is for the folder \usr\lb where "" is in use.
Of course there are more files in use.
In \usr\var it is the folder "fontconfig" that could for an unknown reason not be deleted.

This is really strange. The only program using that should be lilypond.exe itself. Please investigate.

Btw. I noticed that you are using Python 2.4. Perhaps an update to python 2.5 could be an advantage. Then you need at least less files to ship with the installer so it becomes a bit smaller.

usually newer releases get bigger, I'd expect the contrary.
