Why would you want to run a script to uninstall? That's what the built-in RemoveExistingProducts action is for.

Checking for .Net (or whatever) can be achieved using the AppSearch action and associated tables.

Start here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa371197(VS.85).aspx for RemoveExistingProducts then use the selector on the left-hand pane of that page to find the AppSearch action. From there, you can read all about the associated tables.

I'm not a regular IS user, but I'm pretty sure it will have GUI access to these items.

The Tuner tool is for creating the MST. Once you have that, you open it - rather than the MSI - with InstallShield which will then ask you to tell it which is the base MSI for the MST. You can then add whatever it is you need to the MST.

Still, as I say, you don't need a Custom Action to do what you want.
