What is the new "PWCleanUp4EditorDLL.dll" file in latest SECTR update?

Same question applies to the new folder "Common5".

Hi @Goor,

those two are part of our internal toolset that we use to build our applications. 

"PWCleanUp4EditorDLL" is responsible for removing unused scripting defines when a PW application is deleted. (Those scripting defines can cause issues if they stay active after the application is uninstalled / removed). It will display a popup message that asks you if you want to remove those leftovers. Recommendation is to keep it and delete it together with the application with the uninstall, this should trigger its functionality. If it gets in the way for some reason, it can also be deleted but it would not perform that cleanup task anymore.

"Common5" folder contains common logic found across multiple PW products, e.g. the questionmark help button on the UI that displays the help texts. Not recommended to delete unless you completely uninstall as this will break the (PW) application.
