- Guidelines state (if I'm not mistaken) that you should not include a shortcut to remove the installation.

Nevertheless you could create a shortcut (not advertised) which has msiexec as a target. As arguments it should have:
/X [ProductCode]
And for a silent uninstall you could use:
/X [ProductCode] /QB-

For more information about msiexec parameters execute msiexec /?

you could also look at authoring the upgrade table to automagically handle removal of other applications.

lookup these in the SDK
