Uninstall msi

I have this same 'problem'......


The package I need to uninstall was also installed by Installshield, I do know the guid that was used.
However I have searched and search through the registry section referenced by that article but can't find the guid. I have also "searched" the registry still can't find it. A note in the article talks about a special format used by Installshield, can't find that either, and yet the msi will install via Add/Remove Programs, so something is somewhere!

Can anyone suggest where I should look and for what?

Thanks

Make sure you don't confuse product id, package id and upgrade code. It might be the upgrade code that is stored in the registry, I don't really remember.

The guid in your uninstall key is probably what you are looking for...

Thanks for your reply. I've tried both the Upgrade and Product Guid, couldn't find either but I'll check again.

Just search the registry for the name displayed in Add/Remove programs and you should find your uninstall key.
