EVALUATION This CR is N/A for 7u8 because the 7u6 uninstall will handle FX And AB files as expected, and PiP will need not be supported for 7u5 (or earlier) to 7u7 (or later) releases. The PiP issue for 7u6 was resolved by disabling PiP (7185301).

EVALUATION This issue exposes an issue with our Patch-In-Place design. If you: 1. install 7u5 2. then PIP to 7u6 3. Then uninstall 7u6, it will actually launch the 7u5 MSI uninstaller. This is a design flaw that has been around since 6u10, and there is no simple fix. In addition, our jre/bin and jre/lib/ext dirs individually add each file to the MSI RemoveFile table (for different reasons). So newly added files to the jre/bin and jre/lib/ext do not get removed during uninstall. However, as of 7u4, we will now call the 7u6 version of the deploy.dll,UnregisterDeploy.dll function. So we could fix this issue by adding a function called something like RemoveIndividualFiles(). When deploy.dll,UnregisterDeploy() function is called during uninstall, it will remove the list of files in the jre/bin and jre/lib/ext dir. I believe this is the only solution we have for this problem. I believe the install team will have to work with the deploy team on getting this resolved.
