I'm not sure about Wininstall LE, but if it can't leave the application out of Add/Remove Programs you could always write a VB script or AutoIt script to remove the entry (it's just a Registry key).

If your creating msi's with Wininstall then just add the property ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT to it

Thanks for the response.

If in run the package.MSI /quiet /ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT=0 , then it works perfectly.
