Are you saying that you are using WPS to capture the vendor MSI and the patch together ? If so, msiexec /x [GUID] will uninstall your product .... but its not recommended to do that...ever...

Or, using the vendor and patch to install the product, you can uninstall the patch only with this command line:
msiexec /uninstall <PatchCodeGuid>[;Update2.msp] /package <Product.msi | ProductCode>

If you uninstall the product with a patch applied, msiexec /x [GUID] will uninstall everything.

You should be able to extract the .msp from the .exe. After that, track down the .msp's patch code and you will be able to uninstall it with the command line I wrote.

Patches can only be uninstalled if they are authored as such. If not, you won't be able to uninstall the patch, only the full product.
