Watch Uninstall Keys

This command will probably be used by people wishing to determine the correct value for the "UninstallKey" parameter of the "WrapInstall" command.

How it works:

  1. It captures the "before state" of the uninstall registry key information (at "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"). This is used by the Add/Remove Applet.

  2. A popup is displayed.

  3. You perform the installation.

  4. Press "OK" on the popup displayed earlier.

  5. Any new uninstall information is detected and the key for this is displayed.
