    msiexec is a command prompt software that installs an msi program.

    But I have found that you can install an msi file from the command line by just typing in the name of the msi file on the command line.

    But in order to uninstall the msi file, it seems you have to call the msiexec program and give it an /x or /uninstall.

    Does anyone know how I can uninstall and msi from the command line without using the msiexec routine?

    There may be, but I'm not aware of a method to do that. May I ask why you would want to? Is there a limitation you are running into?

    check the registry for the uninstall command the control panel uses for add/remove programs.
