Hi,

> Does anyone know "Where they go wamp64 files after uninstall"?
All the files have gone into galactic immensity and it's totally your responsibility.

When you start the uninstall procedure, you are notified by a message:

WARNING: If you have not backed up your local sites and your databases they will be destroyed.
Do you really want to uninstall Wampserver?

Hi,

There are times when I wonder if it's worth spending time creating warning messages.

Otto,

As someone who has been writing software, user documentation, and technical documentation since 1973 (as well as moving on to systems work - operating systems, telecommunications, etc) I often have the same thought as you:

>"There are times when I wonder if it's worth spending time creating warning messages.

I once heard someone telling an employee how to use some new software. At one point he said -

"The most important thing about using a computer is reading and understanding everything on the screen."

He was not a technical person, he owned the company and was introducing a new employee to the software they used for the business.

I often use his statement when working with someone who is learning to using software and is not actually reading the screen.

Simon
