InstallShield 2016 - Uninstall


We have working MSI with no issues but wanted to find out how the add/remove program uninstall works.

i dont see the uninstall string under the registery key - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
and i dont see the uninstall.exe where we install the package

i removed my MSI from the machine and if i go to my Add/Remove programs still i see the program un-installs successfully.

Could you please help me where to look for the details how the uninstall working if i dong have the msi on my machine.
