How to uninstall/unregister .EXE package



I just created a package for vSphere CLI for our servers. The install works fine.

However for uninstall I get the following error:


I have tried all sorts of parameters in the Uninstall parameter field.

The correct call is:

start /wait MsiExec.exe /X {E60422F6-23F5-446A-B26D-70FF3092BF84} /qn


However I keep getting this error.

Figured it out.
If you change uninstall parameters after an exe package is already installed you need to install again.

Otherwise it will only pick up the parameter that was configured during install time.
