most of the time, it confuses "uninstall" button for a "modify".
when not confusing, it takes 0.5 second for no visible effect.

small detail: installed via non-default mean:

You should have some log files in your %TEMP% directory. Can you zip up the most recent set and attach them here?

FWIW, I just installed with that command and uninstall was fine, though Repair certainly had some issues that I'll investigate.

okay is successfukky repaired, then uninstalled by clicking twice on the installer.exe. 

this never worked by using the "application and functionalities" menu of windows 109.
