Hi Erwin,

Your upgradecode for the bundle will be constant.  

Say that your ever-changing bundle provider key is currently "{3b0bbab6-599d-4ea8-b893-63079306b957}".  The upgradecode will be present under that key as a Reg_multi_sz value.


I have not looked at the burn source code for this, but they key is the upgradecode.

Subject: [wix-users] Uninstalling standard bootstrapper programatically

Hi All,

After install, my program no longer tracks any other information of the bootstrapper. The problem is that, my bootstrapper creates a new GUID every build, disallowing me to be able to uninstall it using a static guid in my program. How do I enable the uninstall programatically, if there's any solution by now?

I have already found two questions that are identical to mine, however these we're asked 3 years ago and we're left basically without an approved answered.
