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

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.
