Uninstaller comes second

I have followed this article http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/DeployUninstall.asp and created uninstaller for my setup project. However, I have translated it into C# from VB.net

my code is like this:

            [STAThread]
            static void Main()
            {

                  string[] arguments = Environment.GetCommandLineArgs();

                  foreach(string argument in arguments)
                  {
                        string[] parameters = argument.Split('=');
                        if (parameters[0].ToLower() == "/u")
                        {
                              string productCode = parameters[1];
                              string path = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.System);
                              Process proc = new Process();
                              proc.StartInfo.FileName = string.Concat(path,"\\msiexec.exe");
                              proc.StartInfo.Arguments = string.Concat(" /i ", productCode);
                              proc.Start();
                              Application.Exit();
                        }
                  }

                  Application.Run(new Form1());
            }

The uninstaller works ok and it unistalls my project. Only once issue here is that when I click uninstaller, it starts the application first and the uninstallation window comes second.  I have put "Application.Run(new Form1());" code at last line (after uninstallation code), why it is still be executed? What can I do to avoid start the project and only uninstall it?

Thanks a lots!

Remove Application.Run(new Form1());
In this way the uninstaller will be started and no form will be shown.
