Is there anyway to make an uninstall program in vb6 or vb net, if I'm using the "Package and deployement wizard" ???

What I like to do is read the file ST6UNST.LOG and be able to make a little program(written in VB6) that will help me uninstall my application after running the setup.exe, instead of using "Add an remove program" from Windows.

Here is the detail in the ST6UNST.LOG file :
****************************************************
 %% PLEASE DO NOT MODIFY OR DELETE THIS FILE! %%
 %% This file contains information about the installation of an application. %%
 %% It will be used to automatically remove all application components from your computer if you choose to do so. %%


NOTE: Beginning of the bootstrapper section

If it is just your program you want to un-install you might want to have a look at:
