No Change/Remove/Uninstall on Program listed in Control Panel

leave a comment »

Weird, I’m an administrator, but by somehow, some application
has no change/remove button active on control panel. This condition
makes me unhappy because I can not uninstall this application.

After searching on registry, I found that InstallShield put installer application
inside c:\WINNT\installer (note: some maybe use C:\Windows\ rather C:\WINNT\).

Example content is

C:\WINNT\Installer>dir *.msi
Volume in drive C is SYSTEM
Volume Serial Number is 6CF9-B7C1

Directory of C:\WINNT\Installer

05/28/2007 02:33p 4,680,192 1087c6f1.msi
09/17/2007 05:14p 208,384 144ee52.msi
03/09/2005 10:24a 466,944 15d87.msi
03/09/2005 10:25a 422,912 15d9d.msi
11/22/2007 11:50a 12,700,672 186e59.msi

You can search each description of this installer by searching any key/data
inside this registry location:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\]

Once you found application to remove, run the appropriate .msi.
