Bug Description

The uninstaller in 8.04.1 was patched to only act on the directory within the same drive as the uninstaller (LP: #236741). But the uninstaller is self-extracted by NSIS to a temp folder under C:. So only installations within C: pass the uninstaller test. Something like the following (using the registry uninstaller path as opposed to $exedir) should do the trick:
