sorry for the trouble guys, finally found the answer 

created the response file for uninstall and ran it locally, it worked for me (after 5 hrs :)))). But as I noticed that, it only uninstalls MPM but not the Pervasive.SQL V8 Workgroup so that shoud be uninstalled before the MPM uninstall

Here is the code

MsiExec.exe /X {5FCFC78C-438A-4F4D-B266-E32B8468BAFC} /qn


xcopy "%~dp0uninst.iss" /y /e "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{3B2D14ED-5E5B-4C71-A1FF-545C8299B1E5}\" >NUL 2>&1


rem C:\Windows\IsUninst.exe /s -f"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Pervasive Software Shared\PSA\psa.isu"


"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{3B2D14ED-5E5B-4C71-A1FF-545C8299B1E5}\setup.exe" /s /f1"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{3B2D14ED-5E5B-4C71-A1FF-545C8299B1E5}\uninst.iss" /f2"C:\install\uninst.log" >NUL 2>&1

Is this application not extracting any MSI file? from the registry it seems that it should be extracting MSI file.

You can always give this a shot. It's sort of always my fail safe.

$app = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product | Where-Object { $_.Name -match "Deltek" } $app.Uninstall()
