Trying to un-install a program from a package and the vendor has not really setup any command - line parameters for this.

We did find out that the un-instlalatin does work from Windows 10 - Programs - Uninstall program.

When one executes the uninstlal manually, a UAC prompt comes up and it states that it will execute:  
File Uninstall command line "C:\Program Files (x86)\FOLDER_HERE\Uninstall.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\FOLDER_HERE\Uninstall\install.log"


How can we try to execute this from a command prompt?  I have already turned off Universal Access Control (UAC) for testing purposes.

I guess the question is how to:

1).  Trigger the uninstall.exe file located in: C:\Program Files (x86)\FOLDER_HERE\ - folder

2).  Use the \install.log file located in another folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\FOLDER_HERE\Uninstall\install.log"
