I wrote a plugin for the WB but when trying to uninstall thru the plugin manager, it looks like it does but when I close the editor and reopen it, the plugin returns. I'm on a roaming account so it does not store the plugin in the modules folder where WB is installed. I had to go thru the scripting tool to delete the file.

How to repeat:
1. Install the plugin
2. Close the editor and reopen it.
3. Open the plugin manager and uninstall the plugin
4. Close the editor and reopen

The plugin is still there.

The plugin should be removed using the plugin manager.

Suggested fix:
Make sure the plugin manager is removing the plugin using the correct path to plugin.

Hello None None,

Thank you for the report.
I tried to reproduce your issue on windows 10 with workbench 8.0.18 using dummy plugin but I am not seeing any issues at my end. To investigate further this issue at our end, may I kindly request you to provide a sample plugin. Thank you.
