Summary0019205: Suggestion: Installer: Fresh/Clean Uninstall option to remove all GMS2 files and settings
DescriptionIt would be nice to have a 'Fresh/Clean Uninstall' checkbox option on the uninstaller to remove all folders created by GMS2. This would help testing a lot and also be a feature that would help CS when assisting users' issues.

[To be clear, this is the install folder, the appdata folder, the programdata folder, and the registry key (plus anything I've missed here)]

Added the clarification of this should remove everything we generate during using GMS2. There should be a label telling them to backup any keys/certificates before continuing with any uninstall also.

We are getting lots of user reports not knowing the licensing process and in turn thinking an uninstall will help them do it.

The problem they face here is that this doesn't work due to their licence information not being removed from the uninstall.
