A better definition of "not able to uninstall" is needed.  Do you have logs from the attempted patch removal?

Subject: [wix-users] Unable to Uninstall a Patch

I am working on a Patch sample using the following link. However, I am not able to uninstall the patch either from Control Panel or from the command line MSIEXEC /i "MsiPath" MSIPATCHREMOVE="PathToMSP"


Can anyone please let me know how to successfully uninstall or rollback a patch?
Note: I have set the AllowRemoval attribute to "yes" in the Patch.wxs file for the Patch element.
