If you mean "How do you select the uninstall program for a ceratin application then maybe this will help.

The information on how to uninstall a program is (should be) stored in the registry at

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Suppose there is some program called SilverSpoon. When SilverSpoon is installed there should be information written in the registry so that windows knows how to uninstall it.

;This is for XP, not sure about Vista but I think it's the same, ie I've done the same for Vista and had no problems.
$prgname = $SilverSpoon"
$progDisplayname = "SSfeeder"
$uninstallProg = "SSremove.exe"
RegWrite("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\" & $Progname, "DisplayName", "REG_SZ", $progDisplayname")
RegWrite("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\" & $Progname, "UninstallString", "REG_SZ", '"' & $ProgFolder & '\' & $uninstallProg & '"')
RegWrite("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\" & $Progname, "DisplayIcon", "REG_SZ", '"' & $ProgFolder & '\Images\uninst.ico"')

;If both NoModify and NoRepair are set to 1, the button (in Windows Add/Remove programs) displays "Remove" instead of "Modify/Remove".
RegWrite("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\" & $Progname, "NoModify", "REG_DWORD", 1)
RegWrite("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\" & $Progname, "NoRepair", "REG_DWORD", 1)
