Hello Lilyponders,

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.

What exactly is in these folders?

Please remove these entries when uninstalling Lilypond, especially the kept file extension may later cause problems.

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.

Note that we create the installer on Linux, and almost never test the windows installer.

Lilypond also left some other registry entries in python registry settings, please also have a look of what can be removed there. To assure that you took care of all entries search the whole registry after you uninstalled Lilypond.
