With Twisted's 8.2.0 Windows installer the uninstall routine leaves behind files in Scripts\ in the Python install directory. In particular it concerns these files:

  • lore.bat
  • manhole.bat
  • mktap.bat
  • tapconvert.bat
  • trial.bat
  • twistd.bat

Also, after installing the installer creates a file tkunzip.log inside the Python installation directory.

Is this still the case with 10.0 therve?

Installed on Python 2.7 / Windows.

These files were never installed in the first place but similarly-named .py files exist. Upon uninstalling twisted, those files were removed.

Did not see tkunzip.log.
