I need to have my own custom uninstaller.
In InstallShield Express 2.0 it was very easy...
I used to follow these steps

1. In Set Visual Designs->Features->Automatic Uninstaller : Uncheck

2. In Make Registry Changes->Registry Keys->
DisplayName MyProdUninstaller
UninstallString <WINDIR>\MyProdUninstall.exe

3. In Specify components and files
Add Group->Uninstallation : Destination Dir <WINDIR>
Add File: MySourceDir\MyProdUninstall.exe

and that's it. It takes care of my custom uninstallation.

But In installshield Express 3.0 I do not see any way to do it.

Both install and uninstall are handled by the Windows Installer service. You can add your own custom action to this. By useing the proper conditions you can decide whether to execute them during install or uninstall.
