When I uninstall my product by selecting change in the
Add/Remove Programs dialog, then selecting Remove in the
Maintenance Type dialog, it is still listed in the
Add/Remove Programs dialog after the install has finished
removeing the product.

If you manually refresh the dialog the listing goes away.

If I remove the product by using the Remove button in the
Add/Remove Programs dialog the listing is automatically
removed from the dialog.

I have tried to debug this but haven't gotten too far.
I've created logs for both product remove methods. When
the listing is removed automatically the log has a bunch
of extra events such as:

MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
file 'C:\WINNT\Installer\21bc1.msi'
MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
file 'C:\WINNT\Installer\{D6C04932-A2AC-4B6D-8C15-
63EBB5F0FF56}\1033.MST'
MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
folder 'C:\WINNT\Installer\{D6C04932-A2AC-4B6D-8C15-
63EBB5F0FF56}\' (if empty)
MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
file 'C:\WINNT\Installer\{D6C04932-A2AC-4B6D-8C15-
63EBB5F0FF56}\moiicon.ico'
MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
folder 'C:\WINNT\Installer\{D6C04932-A2AC-4B6D-8C15-
63EBB5F0FF56}\' (if empty)

When I run the remove via the UI sequence these events are
not executed.

Besides running the UI sequence what other differences are
there in removing a product given the 2 different method
available? What can I do in my UI sequence to make sure
that these extra events are executed when I select to
remove the product?
