I created a setup with Package & Deployment Wizard.

Now I have to deploy a new setup with a new exe and remove the old link.

I found this in the Registry:
HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ST6UNST #x. x is a Number. There is a Key Name UninstallString:
C:\WINNT\st6unst.exe -n "C:\Program Files\OldProgram\ST6UNST.LOG".

Is there a way that I can run the uninstal in silent mode?

I realize this question has been asked before but I do not have enought points to view the solution yet.

From my link:

Silent Uninstall Usage
The following command-line syntax allows for a silent uninstall:
St5unst -n "C:\Program Files\MyApp\St5unst.log" -f -q

St6unst -n "C:\Program Files\MyApp\St6unst.log" -f -q
NOTE: You must use the quotation marks when there is a space in the path or file name.

These command lines use the version-specific uninstall executable files with the -n switch, which allows the uninstall executable to run from a command line. The St5unst.log and the St6unst.log files contain all pertinent information about the installation of the application. You must use the -f and the -q switches in conjunction to force an SMS uninstall, which is silent by default.
