Nested MSIs...the work of Satan.

Keep each product, its installation and uninstallation separate. Use your deployment system or, at a very basic level, some script to chain things together.

I agree, stay away from nested installs. Our job is hard enough without poking that beast.

if you have a deployment tool, use that.

if you don't have a deployment tool, take the easy path, write a simple cmd to run the desired removals.
