VirtualBox 1.6.2 drops VBScript

As I mentioned previously, one of my favorite examples of a tight, clean Windows Installer package for a real product – VirtualBox – succumbed to a dreaded VBScript custom action when they released v1.6.0. Predictably, it caused errors (during uninstallation, because this custom action ran during uninstall only).

VirtualBox 1.6.2 dropped that custom action. The VirtualBox installers still have a few ICE errors and warnings so here’s hoping the VirtualBox team continues cleaning those up.
