The dialogue box when uninstalling the service manager is too wide.

How to repeat:
Uninstall the service manager. Look at the width of the dialogue box that warns about uninstalling data files. Image to follow.

Suggested fix:
The length of the first line of the second paragraph should be cut in half.

We've tried to reproduce the issue with the latest InstallBuilder available at bitrock.com.

The dialog is displayed with a proper size. We've also tried it using "Large Fonts" and "Extra Large Fonts", but the dialogs were displayed with normal wrapping.

Could you try to build the mysql network stack using the latest InstallBuilder provided and see if the issue is still present?

I uninstalled the service manager version and experienced the same problem. The dialogue box is as shown in the image file originally uploaded.

The wide dialogue box as shown in the attached image seems to be the result of the wide-screen monitor. When uninstalling from a computer with a standard 17" monitor (using remote desktop) this dialogue box is sized more reasonably.

Still happening in build

I have seen this on my wide screen monitor even with error messages from some Microsoft products (Outlook, I think).  This is not worth spending any time on.
