Hiding installed MSI from Add or Remove Programs

I'm trying to create a small msi to fix a problem caused by uninstalling another program. I'd like to have this msi not show up in Add or Remove Programs. Is this possible?

Sorry, just found the answer in another post.
Property Table - ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT -- This property decides whether install is published in Add/Remove programs - 1 = NO , 0 (or blank) = YES

If you are using Wise then in options you will chose "Do not Dispaly in Add & Remove Programs" or add a property ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT = 1 in property table or passing it through the command line.

I think it will work!!!
