Maybe I misunderstand but, if you're re-packaging it, how the *current* uninstall works (or not) is irrelevant, isn't it? Once you have an MSI, it should install and uninstall just fine. However, since you mention that uninstalling retains certain features, I figure the current installation is already in MSI format. Can you clarify, please?

try writing this value to the registry during uninstall
HKLM\Software\test\REMOVE = [REMOVE]

or log the uninstall and check that value. This will indicate if all features are marked to uninstall or not.

do you get any installation activity when you execute the app for the first time ? seems like an interesting problem.

It could be that the features that are not removed during uninstall are advertised and are set to permanent through some condition or some other way.
When the application is launched these features are installed on-demand but not removed during uninstall.
