A wizard is available for the Admin Script Editor that scans your system for software that can be uninstalled silently and generates simple script code to do so. If a native silent uninstall string is not provided in the registry by the vendor, the script attempts to build one based on known silent switches for Microsoft, Wise and Inno that support the silent removal of software. Check it out here:

(Note: It will work with the free trial version of the Editor, so you don't have to buy it to use this tool)

On my system, it was able to generate silent uninstall scripts for the below list of software. You'll have to run it to see if it supports what you want- to do so, just run the wizard on a computer that has the software in question already installed.
