InstallService should not automatically uninstall hotfix jars without confirmation

This is in regards to the problem reported here:


The document above is over 2 years old and the problem is still present.  There should not be any circumstances where installing a separate component can cause an installed hotfix to be automatically and silently uninstalled without any confirmation from the user, simply due to the path that the jar happened to be saved to when the installer was run.  At a MINIMUM the install service should warn the user that running the installation from the specified path will result in their hotfix being uninstalled.  Preferably it should be able to correctly install a component regardless of what path its being run from.
