Uninstallation note: Seems I presumed too much MSI knowledge
from the user base. There is no "separate" uninstaller; MSIs are self-contained and thus

The (un)install capabilities of the LucasArts Launcher or any other uninstall links won't work for obvious
When removing MSIs, Windows Installer doesn't remove any registry or filesystem items (files, folders) that have not been part of the installation process itself. As a result, pilot files, mods or configuration files may be left behind during uninstallation. This is expected behavior and I don't really want to mess with that because I prefer a defensive approach as well. Just think upgrade packages would delete your pilot files ...
It's up to the user to backup and/or delete these remaining files/folders.
If there is anything that doesn't match the pattern above, tell me. If there's something I can fix, I will.

This setup is Freeware and a gift for the community. It shall ease the pain of all fellows in misery failing
to install this game on Vista x64 (and other modern Windows operating systems like XP64).
It is neither supported nor endorsed by LucasArts. Use at your own risk! Original CD required (developed/tested
using X-Wing Collector Series English version - may or may not work with localized editions).
MSI tested under Vista Ultimate x64 and Windows XP Pro SP2 (x86).
You may only redistribute the original archive when done free of charge and all files are left intact (no additions, removals or alterations).
The MSI is fully Standards-compliant: It passes all ICE validation tests except ICE66 - which is an irrelevant warning since the MSI is not meant to be Vista-only (tested with WiX Light v3.0.3229.0 and Orca v4.0.5299.0).
