If you are ever in a situation where you are building an installer for an application and things have gone a bit awry with the uninstall process (tut, tut) there is a nice simple way to get yourself back on track.  Simply run the command below and this will force an uninstall of the product matching the GUID supplied in the command.

Msiexec /x {your-product-guid-code} IGNORE_PRE_CHECK=1

I’ve not needed this yet but no doubt it’s worth blogging about as it will rear it’s ugly head at some point!
