remember that a RemoveScript gets run whenever an app gets frozen, or a
card is unmounted.
I assume Jim's original intention was to cleanup after his app only when it
was actually deleted, so a DeletionScript is the correct approach.

you can include it in Project Data or any text file that you've added to
your project.
(I don't know if Windows requires a specific extension)
I assume this is a 2.x project? (DeletionScript not supported for 1.x)

I haven't used a DeletionScript myself, but there are several NTK examples
that do:
  ArchiteTransport, MinMail, ListIcon
so maybe see how the Windows versions of those projects do it.
