Hi,

I think wise cannot do this.

This vbs will find key that you looking for. You can easly modify, for example run section etc.

On error resume next
const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
strComputer = "."
Set ws = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"
oReg.EnumKey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKeyPath, arrSubKeys

var1 = "7-Zip 9.13 (x64 edition)"

For Each subkey In arrSubKeys
tmp = Ws.RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\" & strKeyPath & "\" & subkey & "\DisplayName" )
tmp2 = StrComp(tmp,var1)
if tmp2 = 0 then
msgbox tmp,,""
end if
Next

If you have WiseScript, you have either WIS or WPS, in which case why not use the built-in capability of Windows Installer (i.e. an MSI) to remove an existing product version?
