Hi Hans-Georg,
this is really strange. There are some things I do not understand.
I assume, that the files which should be execut exist.
I assume we speak about OS Windows.

Attached a zip file which contains a test installation project.
Unpack it, adapt %IZPACK_HOME% and may be the java.exe call,
compile, go in a cmd into the dir "execute\dest", execute
java -jar install.jar
After installation the files IzPackBatchTest and IzPackBatchTest2
should be exist in the installation directory.
In the subdir lib install_helper.bat and uninstall_helper.bat
should be exist, but not install_helper2.bat and none of the 
shell scripts for unix.
Go in a cmd into the parent dir of the installation dir. Call
java -jar <Install dir>\uninstaller\uninstaller.jar
Select all files NOT. Uninstall.
The install dir should exist, in it the two log files should exist.
These files are not installed else written by shellscripts. Therefore
they have to exist if not all files in the dir should be removed.
After uninstall
Report your results
