HI there,

for my custom RCP I provide some add-on features that users install using a zip package. The zip provides a full update site using features.
Installation works fine, but now some users sadly want to uninstall such features, too.

When uninstalling from Installation Details/Installed Software, the entry gets discarded. Unfortunately all jars in the plugins folder remain. Even worse: extension points implementations of such plugins remain visible and working in my RCP.

Same applies if I use the Installation History and try to revert to a previous version. Even deleting versions there does not help.

Am I missing something or is it not possible to cleanly uninstall a feature?
