I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate.

I installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Update 4

and then I installed

Web Essentials 2013 for Update 4


Now when I launch Visual Studio 2013 it just crashes.

I thought about uninstalling Visual Studio 2013 and reinstalling it but when I go to control panel and try to uninstall it it won't let me.

Here is a video of me trying to uninstall it: http://bit.ly/1Jgl0q6
When I select it in control panel and then I click uninstall the visual studio window pops up briefly for less than a second and then disappers.

When I try to run the installer , it does the same, the installer window opens briefly and then disappers so I can't repair or uninstall it.


Is there a way to uninstall Visual Studio from command prompt? or anyone have this issue before?
