Hi,

I copy some manifest and policy files in WinSxS folder without using
any installer. My application (say MyApp) is running fine using these
files.

I have observed that another application(say 2nd App) is installed
through its installer through which same manifest and policy files are
distributed.

Both applications are successfully running using the same manifest and
policy files.

After some time if 2nd App is uninstalled then these manifest and
policy files will be removed through uninstall program.

As a result MyApp cannot run properly because it was using those
manifest and policy files which have been removed through uninstaller.

Thnax
