Fix Broken Installer

Real quick one.

I'm developing a Windows Installer Package using WiX and naturally I've made a bu-bu that's rendered a product uninstallable - it just wouldn't budge from my installed programs list. Luckily I have managed to remove all trace of this monstrosity using a tool called msizap which is available from Microsoft as part of the Windows SDK.

I just issued the following command from the SDK prompt:


msizap t {78FD3CB6-B722-4124-A06B-A371D8938DE4}


Where the GUID is the product id of the MSI I created.

Phew.
