Hi All,

I am working with DWG Trueview 2011. I extracted all the files from exe and took admin install of vendor DWGVIEWR.msi provided in the source. This admin install produced one more DWGVIEWR.msi which has been used for creating a transform.

The problem with this MSI is that it is displayed in ARP (even when the option 'Display in Add/Remove Programs' is unchecked in vendor MSI) and when tried to remove it from ARP it throws an error saying
' An error occured while trying to remove DWG Trueview 2011.It may have already been uninstalled.
Do you want to remove DWG Trueview 2011 from Add/Remove programs list?'

When clicked on 'Yes', it simply removes ARP entry and does not uninstalls the product.

I tried to create .mst file and checked 'Display in Add/Remove Programs' option which created one more entry in ARP and this entry is working fine i.e. uninstalling the product.

Can anyone suggest how to supress the entry which actually does not uninstall the application?

I forgot to mention..I tried using the following command line which did not work :

msiexec /i "app.msi" ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT=0

For mst, I tried using

msiexec /i "app.msi" ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT=0 TRANSFORMS="app.mst"

This cmd was used to hide the msi entry and apply the mst entry but it worked the opposite way.
