 Removing entries from Add/Remove list in control panel

Is there an API to remove entries from the Add/Remove list in the control
panel.

Thanks

Hi,

No there is no single API to do this.
What you are seeing in Control Panel is a value named
"DisplayName" for each installed program. Each
installed program has a subkey under ....

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

The name of the subkey is not apparent from Control Panel- you
will have to use RegEdit to get that.

Later,
        Mark
