Are you setting the INSTALLDIR property? I suspect providing a unique INSTALLDIR for each version would prevent older versions from being uninstalled.

Just did this...

Start the exe with the "switch" STATIC=1 and grab the MSI installation from APPDATA folder.
"jre-6u31-windows.....exe STATIC=1"

If you just run the exe and grab the MSI, you'll have to edit the MSI on your own with INSTALLDIR.
If you run with the switch a different MSI is extracted, with all necessary properties for creating "side by side" installations already there.
