Microsoft Uninstalls

Hey Guys,
Question: If I perform a silent deployment of Microsoft Project/Visio using setup.exe + /adminfile + /config switches, will a silent uninstall then require me to use both the adminfile and config again?

Or, can it be done just with a /config config.xml.

I have attempted to silently remove both using 'msiexec /x {product code} /qn' for both products but neither will uninstall.

This will not uninstall through the product code. We need to uninstall by using config file.

setup.exe /uninstall visio /config "..\config.xml"

Make sure the config file has display level="none", suppressmodal="yes" completionnotice="no"

Similarly for MS project.
