I'm trying to find the path of the uninstall file for Apache 2.2. I can see it in Add/Remove Programs, and tried to find the uninstall path in the registry under HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall but there is no folder for Apache....

I'm trying to find the path because I'm making an install file which installs Apache/PHP/MySQL` and want to uninstall any existing installations of those 3 beforehand.

I know that running the Apache installer gives you the option of Repair/Remove if it's already installed but I want the uninstall to be silent/automated, so that the end user doesn't have to manually select remove to actually uninstall the existing apache.

Process Monitor can help you. While you uninstall from Control Panel, it shows real time the file system, Registry, and process activity.

Thanks. Do you know how I can use it for this case? It seems pretty overwhelming and it looks like I need to filter the events. –  Michael Aug 28 '11 at 9:26
