Quicknote: Forcing uninstall of msi

I have recently been working on a build server that compiles and installs an MSI. However, uninstall timed out on one occasion. When I subsequently tried to uninstall through add / remove programs, I got the error “The installed product does not match the installation source”. Fortunately, I was able to use the following command to force uninstall using another version of the msi.

msiexec /i myinstaller.msi REINSTALLMODE=vomus REINSTALL=ALL
