Just add removals for those from the Files and Folders view. But be careful not to delete any user data! Windows Installer is careful about not touching files that have a different modify time stamp (because this strongly hints that the file could be something that the user wants to keep). If the creation time stamp and the modify time stamp are identical, then Windows Installer removes the file because it's no different than what it installed to begin with (and therefore there's no chance that it contained important data that the user may want to keep.)
