Seems odd to me, but, if it's normal practice, then I can make that case.  We haven't had that come up yet, I'm just thinking proactively.

Thank you.

The engine doesn't do it automatically from a user experience point of view.  If you really think this is desired, you have a custom BA so just parse the command line parameters and respond accordingly. (Note, I believe a double click is different than a right click-> Uninstall, but I have not tested this.)

Is it possible to trigger a bundle to uninstall when the uninstall button in Control Panel is pressed?

Currently, my custom bootstrapper just launches and I have to click uninstall again, there, to actually do the uninstall.
