Execute an action while uninstalling

  • Feature Description:
    I need to execute a command inside the app (a C# plugin method, a javascript, something) to delete some files from the games directory. My app use an own GEP which is installed inside the games folders and libowgameevents.dll to communicate with Overwolf.

  • impact for my app: [low, mid, high, show-stopper].
    High. People must delete by their own if they want a clean installation.

  • What is your current pain point?
    I can’t do it in any way.

  • What do you have in mind to solve it?
    Could a C# class executed at uninstallation or a javascript file execute inside the Overwolf context or the app context.

Hi, and thanks for the feedback.

We will discuss the matter internally, and we will update you here.


hi eran,
in progress means you are working on it and there is release date?

@dowmeister “in-progress” means that it’s still under discussion. “accepted” means that there everyone confirms it, and it is pushed to the backlog (usually with an estimated release date).

So regarding this particular issue - I guess that we will have a final decision this week, maybe even today).


We added this feature request to our backlog.
We don’t have an ETA, though, which can take some time to implement and release. Thank you so much for being so patient.
We will update you here once it is ready.
