Hi Steve,

Easier to answer if you say what if any tool you are using. Assumning you are
doing it by hand (Orca):

Create a non-advertised shortcut which points to "[SystemFolder]msiexec.exe".
The command line should be "/x {productcode}", where "{productcode}" is the
actuall Product Code for your install.

Hi Michael, thanks for the quick response. I'm using visual installer
1.1 but I have Orca so your answer is perfect.

I'd assumed I had to access the locally stored msi somehow but wasn't
sure how to. All is clear now :)

Thanks again

Regards
