A system-wide installation on Windows (using InstallAllUsers=1) still places the uninstall executable into the profile (%LOCALAPPDATA%) of the installing user. If that user profile is deleted, the (system-wide) installation cannot be removed anymore.

Ceterum censeo: This bug would have been avoided by using MSI as the distribution package format.
