VB6 Uninstall a Program

Last Modified: 2015-08-01
Hello Experts,

I am trying to build a utility that will uninstall program A and install program B with 1 click. The program I am trying to uninstall doesn't have an uninstall.exe. Pretty much I am trying to automate the uninstallation by avoiding Add/Remove Programs.

To further clarify,  Program A and B are not written by me.

Windows 7 is the OS.
