Hi, all

I am wondering if there's a way to find a specific program in Add or Remove Programs and click Remove button to start the uninstall program.

Thanks.

That could be a bit tricky but you could read the information from the Uninstall key in the registry and then run the uninstall string.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Use RegEnumKey() to locate the application then RegRead() to read the value "UninstallString"

Edit:

If it's only 1 application and you have no need to find all of the installed software then it can be done just by using the RegRead().
