Program Compatibility Assistant


I have installed my application on windows 7. When I start the un-installation from Add/Remove program list and stop the un-installation in between, windows prompts for Program Compatibility Assistant. It doesn't prompt if un-installation is finished.

I tried doing this with couple of other apps in Add/Remove program list. Same thing happened to almost all programs except those whose publisher was "Microsoft Corporation". It didn't even prompt for some of the Intel's programs.

How can I stop this from happening for my application? Is there any list of such programs or something like that???
