Hello !
Is it possible to enter a password when uninstalling the .msi package?

I don't believe this is something that would be encouraged.
The user should be able to uninstall any application from their own machine without being blocked in doing so.
In addition password protecting an uninstall could be maliciously used to lock users out of their machines or performing other tasks.

I can understand that in a corporate situation you may not want employees removing software that is essential for the machine - and in cases such as those a Group Policy could be used.
