Can't use "Add/Remove; would removing refferences in Registry Keys Work?

P: n/a
I was testing the install and uninstall, on my WindowsXP Pro SP2
machine, of software that I created, called, "inbusiness". Because of
the following error message that I received on attempting to uninstall
the program through, "Add/Remove", I assume that I will have to find
some other way to remove it.

"An installation package for the product InBusiness for - Nonprofits
cannot be found. Try the installation again using a valid copy of the
installation package 'InBusine.msi'."

The, "inBusine.msi" file does exit. However, because of the way the
original installed was handled, I think, it's not being recognized as
valid. Is there any back door routines, procedures, methods that I can
use to get it removed from my, "Add/Remove"?

I tried using: "msiexec /uninstall inBusine.msi", and got the same
error message. Is there a "white paper" that will help me with my
problem in the registry keys? Are there other issues, procedures,
instructions, etc. that I should be aware of regarding using the
registry keys in dealing with my uninstall problem?

I've located 2 areas in the Registry, SourceList: "Inbusine.msi" next
to PackageName and under Products: "InBusiness for - Nonprofits" next
to ProductName. Would eliminating one or both these references solve
my problem? Are there other areas of the Registry were I should be
looking to delete any references to my software?

Just delete the registry keys from the Uninstall list.
